About Robert

Robert has worked at Freeths for over 15 years, having trained with the firm.

He has a broad range of litigation experience and Robert has acted for a wide variety of clients, from private individuals through to large commercial organisations (including in the public and not for profit sectors). He is therefore well placed to understand not only the needs of his own clients, but, significantly, those of the other parties to the dispute.

Having specialised his practice, the significant majority of Robert’s case work concerns contentious trust and probate matters, lifetime disputes over assets and disputes in the Court of Protection.

Complementing the above, Robert acts in disputes concerning property, including disputes over shares in jointly owned property, and professional negligence claims in respect of Court of Protection, probate, property and trusts matters.

Robert is a keen advocate of developing case strategy at the initial stages of litigation, providing a clear incremental route to achieving client outcomes. Robert can provide helpful and practical advice from the outset, with a particular focus on how to resolve disputes in a cost-effective and timely way. He is sensitive to the needs of each client, focusing on the commercial and practical realities of the dispute.

Robert is listed as a Recommended Lawyer and recognised as a Rising Star in The Legal 500 (2024 edition) in Contentious Trusts and Probate.
