Daniel leads the Browne Jacobson Inheritance and Trusts Disputes team, which works closely with the firm’s private client team. He has over a decade of experience in dealing with the full range of disputes that might arise in relation to the assets of private individuals.
Daniel’s approach is always a pragmatic one. He prides himself on getting to the heart of an issue in a cost effective manner, and avoiding “legal jargon” in his dealings with his clients.
He has particular experience in post-death disputes involving family businesses, especially farming partnerships. A lot of his work has a property element, whether involving large amounts of agricultural land, or disputed interests in property.
Whilst the work he does typically occurs after a bereavement, he is often asked to either give pre-emptive advice, or to assist in relation to issues that might arise with “life-time trusts”.
Disputes that arise after somebody’s death are often multi-faceted; Daniel is able to draw on a significant breadth of professional experience to successfully handle such disputes.
