About our presenters

Alexander Learmonth, New Square Chambers

Alexander Learmonth has become a major presence at the chancery bar, combining "fine drafting skills" (Chambers UK) with "smooth and persuasive" advocacy” (Legal 500), and is described by clients as “absolutely wonderful” and “as good as any silk” (Who’s Who Legal). In conference, clients find him "charming" and "affable" (Chambers UK Bar), and able to provide reassurance at an emotionally difficult time.

Alexander's principal area of practice is in succession. Described as "intellectually and technically remarkable" (Legal 500), he has appeared in some of the leading cases in his fields, at every level of court, including the first probate case to reach the Supreme Court, Marley v Rawlings.  He is editor of leading textbooks, Theobald on Wills and Williams, Mortimer & Sunnucks on Executors, Administrators and Probate,

Aidan Briggs has established himself as a specialist advocate and advisor for trusts, estates and property disputes. His regular trial experience in the High Court and the specialist property tribunals give him the edge in the courtroom and make him a favourite for factually complex cases where effective cross-examination may be the difference between winning and losing.

Aidan’s practice covers the full range of private client matters: contested probate and 1975 Act claims, partnership disputes and contentious trusts work (both on- and offshore) as well as proprietary estoppel, commercial landlord and tenant disputes and trusts of land. His cases often involve multiple jurisdictions and issues of domicile.

Aidan is fully versed in the tax implications of private client disputes and regularly advises in relation to Inheritance Tax, Capital Gains Tax and Stamp Duty Land Tax matters, particularly as they affect farmland and farming families.

Aidan is an Associate Editor of Lewin on Trusts (20th Ed.) and a contributor to Williams, Mortimer & Sunnucks on Executors, Administrators and Probate (21st Ed.). His writing has appeared in Trusts & Trustees, the Wills & Trusts Law Reports and the New Law Journal.
