Kirstie McGuigan is a partner in our Private Client group. Her particular strength lies in the fact that she specialises in both contentious and non-contentious private client matters, and consequently is able to provide holistic and commercial advice.

Kirstie specialises in the resolution of disputes relating to the formation or administration of trusts and estates both in a UK and international context.  She has developed a strong reputation in the market for her involvement in large complex trusts and contested estates matters (including claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, capacity and construction issues), and she advises on Court of Protection matters, as well.

What sets Kirstie's apart is the fact that, unusually for a private client contentious trusts and estates specialist, she is multi-disciplined as she advises on non-contentious private client matters. Kirstie advises trustees of trusts of considerable value and domestic HNW individuals and families and is experienced in the areas of probate, succession and Wills especially involving multi-jurisdictional assets, landed estates and heritage tax issues. Kirstie also acts as a trustee, executor and attorney for many of her clients.
