James Bacon

Spear's Review

With a focus on trusts, succession law, and tax, James Bacon joined Payne Hicks Beach in 2006. He has since developed a large client base of landed estates, charities, trust protectors, beneficiaries, trustees, private clients and families based both in the UK and abroad. 

He frequently advises on matters such as contentious trust and estate work, succession law, estate planning, and the commercial use of trusts. His expertise was consulted by publishing house, Bloomsbury, for a book that was published in July 2022 examining international succession laws. 

Bacon has been featured in the Legal 500 and the Citywealth Lawyers List.
