INHERITANCE


Probate, inheritance and the administration of estates are a traditional area of chambers' work and we have specialist experience in dealing with many aspects of the law of succession. We have been involved in some of the most high-profile and important cases in this area, including XXX examples.

TRUSTS


Trusts are the traditional base of chambers' work. We have specialist experience in dealing with many aspects of the law of trusts. Members have been involved in some of the most important trusts litigation of recent times, including the Ojjeh litigation in the Cayman Islands, the XXX litigation etc.

Our expertise covers lifetime settlements, will trusts, resulting or constructive trusts, trusts arising from the co-ownership of land, trusts in the context of matrimonial proceedings, pensions trusts, charitable trusts and the taxation of trusts.

Chambers has particular expertise and experience in wealth structuring and protection for international families from both the advisory and the litigation standpoints.

MEDIATION


Mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution in civil litigation have gained increased prominence in recent years, recognising that case law now directly encourages attempts to mediate and/or to attend hearings for early neutral evaluation of a claim, and that there are potential costs penalties for failing to attempt to settle claims in this way.

ICT Chambers members are experienced as advocates and advisers at mediation, and at early neutral evaluation or dispute resolution hearings, which are becoming increasingly frequent in the Chancery Division. Members also have experience of acting as appointed specialists to provide non-binding neutral evaluation of a claim to parties to a dispute.

OFFSHORE


In the global marketplace, and with families affairs becoming increasingly international, the practice of law no longer operates only in a jurisdiction-specific nature. An increasingly common feature of our work is the prevalence of cross-border contentious and advisory work in relation to international trusts and estates.

We specialise and are frequently instructed in matters pertaining to trust litigation, insolvency, company law, investment funds, fiduciary matters and proceeds of crime in the offshore arena. Resolving conflict of laws issues and challenges to jurisdiction is a consistent theme throughout this area of work.

Members of chambers are very used to working with lawyers in many offshore jurisdictions, including as part of major multinational litigation teams. As a result, we have, over the years, built up substantial and long standing connections in many overseas jurisdictions, particularly in the Caribbean and the Channel Islands. Members of chambers have appeared or have the rights of audience in Jersey, Guernsey, BVI, the Cayman Islands and the Bahamas. ICT also has a permanent office in the Cayman Islands.

CHARITIES


We offer advice on the formation, structure and administration of charities, and on the many kinds of contentious issues which can arise in connection with charities.

These include property disputes, trust disputes, issues relating to professional negligence and issues surrounding the construction of wills, contentious and non-contentious probate, and the administration of estates.

ISLAMIC LAW


ICT Chambers offers advice on Islamic law, the religious law forming part of the Islamic tradition. The manner of Islamic law's application in modern times has been a subject of dispute between Muslim traditionalists and reformists.

We are experienced in working with Middle Eastern families…
