Spear's Review

‘Intra-family disputes can be notoriously emotive,’ says Mark Keenan, a partner in Mishcon’s private client team specialising in complex intra-family domestic and international trust and succession disputes. ‘You need to be able to recognise the importance of all issues on the table.’

An appreciation of these overlapping issues informs Keenan’s approach. ‘To do my job well I need to understand my client, their background and their business,’ he says. ‘It’s not good enough to just know about the case and the law.’

A veteran of the firm – he joined in 1995 before becoming a partner in 2007 – Keenan’s practice comprises both domestic and international trust and succession disputes, often involving asset-tracing and recovery in offshore jurisdictions.

Adviser Profile

Mark is a partner in Mishcon Private, specialising in complex inter-family domestic and international trust and succession disputes often involving asset-tracing and recovery in offshore jurisdictions.

He has significant experience in advising private individuals and trustees on cross-border inheritance disputes, Will disputes, Inheritance Act claims, Court of Protection applications, estate administration issues, breach of trust and proprietary estoppel claims.

Mark is a professional Deputy of the Court of Protection, a member of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS), the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and the International Fraud Group (IFG).
