Farrer & Co is highly regarded for its experience handling complex private client disputes and is recognised as "a true force in this area." An industry expert reports: "They're immensely sensible and practical about collaboration."

Notable practitioners

Adam Carvalho was promoted to partner in May 2020. One interviewee reports: "He's an excellent technical lawyer and he's absolutely confident running his own cases." Another notes that "he brings a great enthusiasm to his cases and is excellent at decisive decision-making," before adding: "He is a bold strategic thinker."

Charlotte Fraser acts for a variety of both individual and institutional clients on a wide range of contentious matters. "She is very calm, measured and it's a pleasure to have her on the other side," says one disputes lawyer. Another peer comments: "She's incredibly conscientious and good to work with."

Jeremy Gordon is highly respected for his work in contentious trusts and estate matters. "He has that authority that comes with experience. He is particularly good at finding a route to settlement others don't see and bringing parties to the table. He carries out his work with characteristic charm," explains one legal insider. Another says: "If I had a contentious probate case of my own then I think Jeremy would be the first person I would pick up the phone to - he is the complete package in the contentious trust world."

Joanna Poole is well regarded for her advice to high net worth clients in relation to private wealth disputes. "She always finds an economical and practical result," states one source. "She has a very impressive authority and is very much on top of the case law," comments another.

Toby Graham is head of the firm's contentious trusts and estates group, and a barrister states that "he really is the best in London for this kind of work." One market source says: "He is intelligent, focused and very hard-working," while another source comments: "Toby is a force of nature and a truly brilliant solicitor." "He is brilliant with clients and so forceful on their behalf," notes an interviewee, who adds: "He is a real star performer."
