We have a strong, focused private client team, who deal primarily with the more contentious aspects of private client and probate work.

What is covered?

36 Civil offers substantial strength and expertise in Chancery, company / commercial and equitable rights and remedies, assisting trustees, beneficiaries and others that have rights, obligations or interests in relation to assets, property and beneficial interests of value subject to wills and probate, trusts and statutory control, or competing proprietary rights. 

We can especially handle or assist in urgent cases of civil fraud – see our contact details – for out of hours contact details for very urgent matters.

We routinely deal with contentious and non-contentious matters in respect of private interests in trusts, estates, properties, pensions and charities.  We can undertake this work no matter its nature, be it private/family, company/commercial, or where personal insolvency (bankruptcy) or capacity is in issue, both in private law matters and practice in the Court of Protection.

We advise and represent owners, executors, trustees, beneficiaries and third parties in relation to proprietary rights and personal obligations, the nature of obligations imposed on people who come into touch with personal assets, and their recovery when wrongly appropriated, interfered with or dissipated, as well as complex questions of limitation or the passing of title in moveable property. Multi-jurisdictional matters often feature in this type of work.

Strong technically, dedicated and reliable and with great attention to detail, our barristers carrying out this work are also easy to work with.
