Notable practitioners

Emily Mailer is "very hard-working, on top of the detail, very easy to work with, a nice person and nothing fazes her," says an interviewee, adding: "It's a great quality to have in private client disputes: she is level-headed and able." Another source describes Mailer as "reasonable, measured and unflustered by anything," and says that she is "just really good at putting clients at their ease and very sound on tax as well." She advises clients on Court of Protection matters, as well as contentious trusts and estates cases.

Naomi O'Higgins handles domestic and international trust disputes, inheritance claims and Court of Protection matters. "She is sublimely intelligent and very, very dedicated to clients," says an interviewee, adding: "She is very responsive, good at seeing the nuances in a case, and is very good at predicting what the other side will do so that she can get the best outcome for the client."
