Robert Hunter to give Keynote Address

Robert Hunter

Mourant Ozannes is delighted to announce London-based Robert Hunter as keynote speaker at the inaugural Mourant Ozannes’ International Trusts Conference.  Robert is head of international law firm Herbert Smith’s trust litigation practice and co-head of its civil fraud, asset tracing, corporate crime and investigations practice.  He is widely acknowledged as one of the UK’s most highly respected lawyers in fraud and trusts litigation.  He is a founder member of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists and has served as Secretary since its formation.

Legal directory Chambers UK in 2011 described Robert as “a legend and a genius.”  Legal 500 UK in 2010 said “he is at the top of his game”, is “like a bloodhound in pursuit of his clients’ interests”, and has “an ability to read the fraudster’s mind and anticipate his reactions”.

His list of credentials include the Kostic v Chaplin contested probate claim relating to the mental capacity of a testator who made a bequest of almost his entire multi million pound estate to the Conservative Party in Great Britain as a result of paranoid delusions regarding an international conspiracy against him as well as a case involving freezing orders, orders for delivery up of passports and cross-examination resulting from allegations of breach of fiduciary duty and fraud against the former Chairman of an energy company.

The Mourant Ozannes International Trusts Conference will take place on Friday 14 October at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Grand Cayman.
