Trusts in Litigation
30th March - 1st April 2022
Hotel Alfonso XIIISeville

Timothy Sherwin
Barrister at XXIV Old Buildings


Timothy is a chancery barrister with a practice in private client and business litigation. He was named Star Junior Under 10 Years’ Call at the Chambers and Partners High Net Worth Awards 2020.

Extraordinarily for one of his call, Timothy is ranked as “up and coming” both for Chancery: Traditional work in Chambers and Partners HNW 2021, where clients describe him as  “absolutely brilliant – super bright, very quick, very responsive and did a great job for us“, and for Chancery: Commercial work in Chambers and Partners UK Bar 2021, where Timothy is described as “a very able junior with a maturity and level of ability which belies his call… He has been excellent“. He is also ranked as a “rising star” by the Legal 500 UK Bar 2021 in Private Client: Trusts and Probate which calls him “tough, tenacious and charming“; Civil Fraud, where he is noted as “Exceptionally bright, years ahead of his call in his knowledge and capability“; and Company, recording that he has “an increasingly active practice in section 994 petitions and companies held in trust structures“.

Timothy has detailed experience of contentious trusts, probate and succession cases, Court of Protection matters, company cases, insolvency disputes, civil fraud, as well as banking and general commercial litigation. He is very frequently instructed on cases which involve a number of overlapping areas of law.

Timothy relishes advocacy. He appears led and in his own right in the High Court, and regularly conducts hearings in the County Court. He has been described by clients as an “excellent” advocate whose performance in court is “exceptional“. High Court judges have said that his advocacy is “exemplary” and “impeccable“.
