Practice Areas

Henry’s practice includes a broad range of Chancery work, but with particular emphasis on cases involving trusts, estates, pension schemes and art. He has appeared in many high profile trust disputes both onshore and offshore as well as some of the leading pensions cases of the last few years. He has extensive experience of acting for claimants and defendants in professional negligence claims in all of these areas. He has an additional area of expertise in disputes involving works of art and chattels. In this area he has particular (and probably unique) experience of claims against auction houses, but has acted in the full range of non-copyright disputes and issues which arise in relation to works of art. Henry has acted as an expert witness in courts outside the UK in all of his areas of expertise.
