‘There are well-educated and well-adjusted people who turn into absolute monsters in will and trust disputes,’ says Jeremy Gordon, partner at Farrer. But the surprising nature of the work makes for an interesting life. ‘Contentious trusts attract interesting lawyers. They enjoy the drama.’ Gordon is certainly ahead of many of his competitors, having been involved in a slew of high-profile cases including the Supreme Court case FHR Europe Ventures LLP v Cedar Capital Partners LLC, not to mention ongoing litigation against Sergei Pugachev. He also points to the complexity of his work. ‘Family law, for instance, is predominantly two-dimensional. Trusts work involves three or four parties and that creates a different dynamic.’
