Three Gowling WLG lawyers are named among Citywealth's Top 100 trust litigators and polymaths, recognising the best litigators worldwide in 2020.
Trusts litigation Partners Andrew Witts, James Sidwell and Catherine Naylor are included in the UK financial magazine's latest list, establishing the world's 100 elite litigators as recognised by industry peers.
The three Gowling WLG lawyers feature among only 39 English lawyers in total recognised this year, also placing the trio amongst the most respected trust litigators practicing in the UK.
Established following an extensive research process over several months, Citywealth's Top 100 trust litigators and polymaths list is created to form a top trust litigator list which is fit for purpose, with one of the key questions asking: who has impressed you most during current or past litigations?
The answers reveal a list of peer recommended litigators who have "negotiated with the toughest opponents, through the hardest circumstances and with very little on their side but brains, lateral thinking and a will to win."
Client and peer feedback describes Andrew Witts as a "Tectonic litigator, overseeing the world's litigation stage", with James Sidwell praised for "Protecting clients with extraordinary advice and clarity in difficult, international disputes", and the "incisive" Catherine Naylor acclaimed for her "masterful…confident and tenacious" approach, bringing "analytical acuity and strategic nous to her cases".
Gowling WLG's award-winning trusts litigation team has a wealth of experience of trust disputes - both onshore and offshore, acting for professional trustees in complex, often multi-jurisdictional litigation, drawing on a network of specialist advisers to ensure seamless service wherever your proceedings may be.
