Gareth Jones

Barrister-At-Law

Gareth practises from London, Cheltenham and Cardiff with a traditional chancery practice and is recognised in the Legal 500 as a specialist Trusts barrister.

His interest in trusts extends to all aspects of this topic ranging from Express Trusts (including Will Trusts) to those such as constructive and resulting trusts arising informally, for example out of cohabiting relationships and under the Trust of Land and Trustees Act 1996. He combines this with other traditional areas of Chancery, especially Land based actions such as boundary and easement disputes and Landlord and Tenant.  Gareth has appeared several times before the Land Registry Adjudicator. He also includes banking and guarantees in his practice and is often called upon for Inheritance Tax advice. Elderly clients and their protection also feature, and in particular, the setting aside of transactions for Undue Influence and Unconscionable Bargain.

Perhaps the fastest growing area of his practice is Contentious Probate, including, but in no sense limited to, Inheritance Act claims.   Gareth carries on work in the Administration of Estates, including insolvent estates, and the removal of awkward and recalcitrant Trustees and Executors is something of a speciality.

Frequently traversing the M5 and M4 Gareth will happily travel and is often before the Chancery Division in London.
