Contributor to Williams, Mortimer & Sunnucks on Executors, Administrators and Probate (21st Ed.).

Practice Areas

Aidan’s practice covers the full range of private client matters: contested probate and 1975 Act claims, partnership disputes and contentious trusts work (both on- and offshore) as well as proprietary estoppel, commercial landlord and tenant disputes and trusts of land. His cases often involve multiple jurisdictions and issues of domicile.

Aidan is fully versed in the tax implications of private client disputes and regularly advises in relation to Inheritance Tax, Capital Gains Tax and Stamp Duty Land Tax matters, particularly as they affect farmland and farming families.

Since appearing in the leading capacity case of Ashkettle v Gwinnett [2013] EWHC 2125 (Ch), Aidan has been sought out for contested probate actions and claims under the Inheritance Act 1975 for his in-depth legal knowledge and skill as a cross-examiner.

Aidan’s property practice is focussed on trusts of land, property fraud and injunctive relief.

He is sought-after as a mediator and arbitrator.
