Emma leads our contentious trusts team in the UK. She's described by clients as a commercially astute advisor with a formidable reputation for trust litigation work. She's advised on landmark cases including the first ever action involving an insolvent trust. Emma's mandates often involve a crossborder or international element.
Emma is dual qualified as an English Barrister and a Jersey Advocate, allowing her to represent clients in the Jersey Courts directly.
She advises across aspects of contentious trusts work, and has a particular focus on representing trustees and high net worth clients.
Her practice covers civil fraud work, asset-tracing and recovery within the context of offshore trusts and structures. She also helps clients with alternative dispute resolution strategies including mediation.
