Profile

Charles Lloyd

Description

Urbane, with a calm, confidential manner, Charles Lloyd is a much-liked figure in the profession. It’s a reputation borne of hard work. ‘I’ve been quite busy for the last six months,’ he says. ‘There are things I should do, like say “Hi” more often to my children.’ Yet the work is galvanising for him: ‘I’m not complaining. It’s a privilege to have interesting work. I look at my partners doing banking transactions and think, “I’m really lucky”.’ He tells Spear’s that probate litigation has increased. ‘I’ve had two or three examples in the last year. There’s a new subtlety to this area – people don’t wait until the matriarch or the patriarch dies anymore – the battle begins when the person starts losing capacity.’
