Charles Lloyd is a "fantastic operator," said a market insider; "he is a class act – he is calm, has good judgement and knows his stuff." One of Lloyd's peers said: "He is my first choice of litigator in London for complex, cross-border trust litigation. He has got experience, skills and great judgement. He also has a sense of humour, which is very valuable professionally. He uses his wit and intellect to make things come alive and to make points. He is very effective, very bright and very good on creative strategy."
