Top Six Contentious Trust Lawyers
It doesn’t matter who you speak to, you’ll not hear a bad word spoken about Anthony Poulton, who has built up a highly international practice based on exceptional skill and competence, but also an amiable personality.
Poulton’s particular focus is on advising clients in disputes related to private wealth, trusts and private banking – his clientele includes trustees, executors, protectors, beneficiaries and interested third parties. Like all the other lawyers in this list, Poulton is familiar with the major offshore jurisdictions, but he’s also known for handling work
with a Middle East, Far East and Russia angle.
For instance, he acted for a Jersey-based trustee in a complex $500 million fraud claim which spanned numerous jurisdictions including Russia, Kazakhstan, England, Jersey, Guernsey and the BVI. That’s rarefied work – particularly when you throw in an overseas criminal investigation, as well as various asset-tracing and corporate law aspects.
Poulton acted for Grupo Torras SA in relation to the enforcement of an $800 million judgment against trust and personal assets following a fraud on the company by key management personnel, and is involved in multi-billion-dollar litigation in Bermuda.
Poulton is a founding member of the Commercial Fraud Lawyers Association, and a member of ACTAP. This is an impressive lawyer with an unmatched reputation.
