‘Martin Paisner probably works harder than anyone else,’ says a colleague. ‘He is the bestconnected lawyer out there, and has a collection of clients that are hugely impressive.’ Such a position has been hard-won after many years of practice. He became a partner at Paisner & Co (as it was before the firm’s 2001 merger to become Berwin Leighton Paisner) in 1972. He brings his 45 years’ experience to bear on a wide range of charity and private client practice law. This includes estate planning, as well as a marked expertise in domestic and offshore trusts. Paisner is a trustee of a great many family trusts and charities, a strong advocate for Israel, and a trustee for the Holocaust Educational Trust.
