According to Chambers & Partners, Gilead “Offers masterful guidance on trust and property litigation, and has an excellent track record in high-profile disputes.” He has wide experience in dealing with real property issues, including title disputes, easements, restrictive covenants, land options and pre-emption rights, mortgages, joint property and professional negligence relating to conveyancing. He is frequently instructed on matters concerning large landed estates, and recently acted for the Earl of Cardigan in relation to the trustees’ alleged mismanagement of the Savernake Estate.

He has appeared in numerous property cases, including Jones v Cameron Management Ltd, a claim for rectification of Land Register; Padgham v Rochelle, concerning an agricultural tenancy; and Winsper v Perrett, in which the issue was whether property was held on beneficial joint tenancy or tenancy in common.

“He is a very persuasive advocate and a brilliant speaker.”

“He is very measured and very impressive. Very good at looking at the overall strategy, he is insightful and very impressive on his feet.”
