Emma Holland

Spear's Review

A rising star within Stewarts’ growing contentious trusts team, Emma Holland specialises in disputes relating to private wealth matters, trusts and succession in jurisdictions around the world. She regularly works with trusts expert James Price, who leads the trust and probate litigation department. Both partners have together undertaken some of the most complex cases in the landscape involving high value assets.

Holland acts for HNWs as well as trustees, companies and charities. Most of her clients are international, and her practice has impressive breadth. ‘Our work has ranged in variety from the restructuring of Bermudian trusts to contested deputyship applications in the Court of Protection,’ she says.

Adviser Profile

Emma advises beneficiaries, trustees, and other fiduciaries on trust disputes both onshore and in numerous offshore jurisdictions. Often there is friction between beneficiaries and fiduciaries and she assists with facilitating separation of beneficial interests, and with associated court applications.

Emma also specialises in succession and probate disputes, including when conflicts of private international law arise, and disputes relating to capacity overseen by the Court of Protection.

Emma is recognised by Chambers High Net Worth as being ‘absolutely excellent’ and ‘one of the best operators in her field’, by The Legal 500 as a ‘Next Generation Lawyer’ and by Private Client Global Elite as ‘One to Watch’.
