Gregor Hogan


Year of Call: 2016

Practice Overview

Gregor is developing a busy commercial and chancery practice with a particular interest in commercial litigation, contentious trusts and probate (onshore and offshore), company and insolvency, and civil fraud.  He regularly appears in the High Court, where he is instructed in his own right on interlocutory matters, and in the County Court.  Gregor has acted for a range of clients, including trustees, high net worth individuals, insolvency practitioners, national charities and international companies, and in jurisdictions including Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man, BVI and the UAE.  Gregor is also a contributing author on the forthcoming edition of Tudor on Charities.  Recent instructions include advising on a claim related to allegations of fraudulent breaches of directors’ duties in the context of a property development, drafting pleadings for municipal claimants in England’s largest environmental tort claim arising out of a South American mining disaster (Municipality of Mariana & Ors v BHP Billiton plc (the Fundão Dam Litigation)), and acting for the trustee-executors in the Cowan v Foreman litigation.

Gregor is also regularly instructed on cases involving the DIFC and the Middle East generally.  His recent instructions include advising on a cross-border commercial dispute involving allegations of fraud and breach of duty, acting for one of Dubai’s largest construction companies, and seeking freezing relief against an international bank.  Gregor has also contributed the Arbitration chapter in the forthcoming publication DIFC Courts Practice and accepts instructions on arbitration matters.

After completing pupillage in Chambers in 2017, Gregor spent seven months in the Contentious Trusts and Succession group at Withers LLP, during which he worked on a number of Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 claims involving dynastic and high net worth estates as well as advising offshore trustees and charities on a range of contentious and non-contentious matters.

Before joining Chambers, Gregor was a Lecturer in Constitutional, EU and Administrative Law at St Hugh's College, University of Oxford and was a research assistant to Professor Jeremias Prassl on his book The Concept of the Employer.
