David de Ferrars

Spear’s Review

A well-known figure in the field of fraud and commercial litigation, David de Ferrars has a particular specialism in addressing various disputes surrounding the sale and purchase of classic cars; this could be anything from a blip in a car’s provenance, someone selling a car they don’t own, or forgeries – which are increasingly common. 

He has been with Taylor Wessing since qualifying over 25 years ago, but it was when colleague Ronald Graham brought his clients from RM Auctions (now RM Sotheby’s) to the firm that he was able to use his lifelong interest in cars in the workplace. 

‘I’ve always owned something that’s old that involved tinkering under the bonnet to the extent of my capabilities,’ he previously told Spear’s.
