Profile

Rupert Ticehurst

Description

‘If litigators were dogs, a client would need a mutt with a mix of qualities – not bred for anything in particular, and so able to adapt,’ says Rupert Ticehurst. His background is in advising on trusts, wills and tax planning, but his bread and butter has always been litigation. The two disciplines inform each other: as an adviser, he can foresee how a trust or estate may be attacked; as a litigator, he understands why trusts are established and how they work. He believes the most effective litigators are able to coax the other side into calm discussion and reach compromise. ‘Aggressive lawyers – rottweilers – achieve one thing… a prolonged, bitter negotiation,’ he says.
