Philip Youdan


I specialise in resolving disputes concerning money and other assets left on trust or under the terms of a will and in contentious regulatory work.

My experience and my calm and methodical approach allow me to understand my clients and their objectives. I like to tailor solutions to address their needs, offering clear, pragmatic and commercial advice.


I enjoy the challenge of negotiating an outstanding result, even when the circumstances may seem that an agreement would not be possible.
