‘We mainly do high end work,’ says Charles Lloyd. Whether it’s representing a wealthy family in obtaining worldwide freezing orders for over $500 million in a trust-related dispute, or advising on substantial probate frauds, Lloyd is one of the most urbane and intelligent lawyers out there. ‘It’s the multi-dimensional nature of it which is exciting,’ he says. ‘You might have a father who wants to do something, or the wife, or the children. There might be different trustees with different ideas… it’s a diplomatic minefield.’ The work opens up onto human nature. ‘There’s a generation of children growing up [who] don’t see the fortune their parents have generated… as a substitute for the kind of childhood they’ve had.’
