Disputes lawyer Nigel Adams combines his disputes practice with his significant experience in work surrounding classic cars, where he focuses on provenance and restoration/repair disputes. ‘The value of classic cars can be high, so it is worth fighting your corner,’ says Adams.
A personal interest in classic car marques has prepared him for navigating an industry in which problems can often arise. He has worked on numerous prominent disputes involving marques such as Bugatti, Ferrari, and Jaguar – although the most valuable was a pre-war Mercedes-Benz racing car. ‘Understanding the types of personalities in the market can only be gained by experience,’ he explains.
