Anthony Poulton chairs the trusts disputes group in London. "He is very well regarded across the board,"said one of his peers; "everyone you speak to likes him. He is a nice person, smart and incisive, and is not overly aggressive. He has a more modern approach to litigation - more constructive." Another praised Poulton's "calmness and thoughtfulness" in litigation, explaining: "He doesn't jump in - he will take time, and I think that pays dividends."
