James Price

Spear's Review

Trust disputes invariably involve friction between beneficiaries and trustees, which often leads to litigation, so James Price and his team at Stewarts are frequently instructed to assist with court applications, both onshore and offshore. Whatever the nature of the dispute, ‘there is usually an international dimension,’ he says.

Price's team has grown significantly since he set it up over five years ago and he believes that trusts and estate litigation is only set to increase. ‘This type of work brings with it particular challenges created by events like death, divorce or family breakdown, so lawyers in this area require both emotional intelligence and technical expertise in equal measure,’ he says.

Adviser Profile

James Price is a top ranked litigator described as "articulate, level-headed… incredibly smart and thoughtful".

He specialises in disputes relating to private wealth matters, trust and succession in England and other jurisdictions. He has considerable expertise in handling governance issues - both family and corporate - in a private wealth disputes context. In addition, he has handled a number of commercial disputes, especially in cases involving fraud and asset tracing (particularly where trusts are involved).

He has substantial experience in complex, high-value litigation, acting for UHNWs in all offshore jurisdictions including the Bahamas, Bermuda, Cayman, Jersey, Guernsey, Switzerland, Singapore and Hong Kong.
