Disputes lawyer Nigel Adams is used to a steady stream of work surrounding classic cars, particularly on questions of title and provenance. ‘Because the value of these things is now so high, it is worth fighting your corner and worth the other side defending theirs,’ he says. A personal interest in classic cars stood him in very good stead for dealing with the industry where plenty of ‘tricks’ are played. Disputes Adams has worked on include one concerning a Bugatti Type 35, and a pre-war Mercedes- Benz single seat racing car. ‘The most valuable thing is experience in dealing with these kinds of disputes,’ he says. ‘Understanding the types of personalities involved and the tricks that people play can only be gained by experience.’
