Since joining Chambers in 2021, Harry has begun to build a broad practice. He has acted in a wide range of matters, from commercial dispute resolution and insolvency cases to cases involving company law, trusts work (both domestic and offshore), and probate and estates litigation.
He welcomes instructions in all of Chambers’ core practice areas, and is comfortable being instructed as sole counsel as well as part of a wider team.
Examples of Harry’s recent work include:
- Appearing as sole counsel in numerous County Court and High Court hearings, including on interim applications, costs applications, possession proceedings, enforcement proceedings, and bankruptcy and winding-up petitions.
- Advising, as sole counsel, on an oppression/unfair prejudice action in the High Court of Singapore in relation to a multi-million pound company.
- Advising the trustees of a large family trust on various applications to the court for directions.
- Advising, as sole counsel, on defending a challenge to a will on the grounds of lack of capacity, want of knowledge and approval, and undue influence.
- Acting for disgruntled beneficiaries in a claim against trustees for breach of trust, involving allegations of forgery and fraud.
- Acting for dissenting shareholders in complex share value appraisal proceedings under section 238 of the Cayman Islands Companies Act.
During pupillage, Harry also worked on cases including:
- Assisting Erin Hitchens at a three-week trial involving asset tracing, claims of fraud, multi-jurisdictional trusts, and insolvency law (Akhmedova v Akhmedov  EWHC 545 (Fam)).
- Assisting Andrew Holden at a week-long trial involving claims of forgery, successfully obtaining judgment for £4.75million in a claim for repayment of a loan which the defendant claimed was a gift (Volpi v Volpi  EWHC 1783 (Ch)).
