Adam’s practice spans both contentious and non-contentious work in the field of luxury assets, with a particular focus on superyachts and private jets.
His client base is predominantly comprised of UHNWI’s and Family Offices, but also includes other industry participants such as managers, brokers and corporate service providers.
His non-contentious practice covers all manner of transactional and advisory work, from new build yacht construction projects (from 24m to 140m+), sale and purchase, refit contracts, asset finance, crew employment, insurance, regulatory and tax work (particularly VAT). Other areas of expertise include corporate re-domiciliation and questions of “permanent establishment”, which can have an impact on the use and ownership of luxury assets.
Adam’s contentious practice is also focused on work pertaining to luxury assets with a particular emphasis on construction and other commercial disputes arising out of yacht and aviation transactions.
Across all areas of his practice, Adam values building strong relationships with clients and puts client care and service before everything else.
Adam read law at Cardiff University and worked as an associate and then as a Partner at another superyacht and luxury asset law firm before joining Hannaford Turner as a Partner in November 2019.
