Trusts, Tax, Probate & Estates

Robert Ham is experienced in all areas of trusts and private client law, both contentious and non-contentious.  In England a judge has called him a “leading expert in the law of trusts”.

In 2013 he appeared in both private client cases heard by the UK Supreme Court: Futter v Futter, joined with and reported as Pitt v Holt [2013] 2 AC 108, about the rule in Re Hastings-Bass, and Marley v Rawlings [2014] 2 WLR 213, the first probate case to go to the highest court in England since 1958, about the correct approach to the construction of wills and rectification.

He has been described as “a heavyweight figure in international trusts litigation” and has appeared in trust cases all over the world, from Borneo to the BVI.  He is a bencher of the Middle Temple and a former deputy high court judge.
