Speakers

Ian Clarke KC
Call: 1990 | KC: 2016

Ian’s continued recognition in the legal directories and his consistent rankings for Chancery commercial dispute resolution, private client (trusts and probate) and property matters only serves to underline the expertise and qualities which he brings to bear in these and other cases in which he is instructed.

Previous editions of the directories previously recorded that Ian is “fluent and persuasive in his advocacy, which is razor-sharp in its delivery; [he] is utterly committed to the case”, being “the person you would want to defend your corner” and who builds a good rapport with clients, with whom “[he] engages well…. and has his own particular style – direct, to the point and with good humour”.

He is instructed on behalf of clients ranging from international corporations, banks and lending institutions and insurers to officeholders, trustees and private individuals, in this jurisdiction and overseas (particularly in the Caribbean, Bermuda and Gibraltar). To all these matters, Ian brings the practical, well-informed and responsive approach for which he is commended.

Julia Beer
Call: 2003

Julia TEP has a traditional Chancery practice specialising in contentious probate, with particular expertise in domicile and cross border estates, fraudulent wills and 1975 Act claims. She is frequently engaged in the removal of personal representatives; contentious issues in the administration of estates and trusts; claims by beneficiaries asserting proprietary claims including estoppel; constructive and resulting trusts. She was listed in the Chambers High Net Worth rankings 2022 & 2023 reflecting the complex and high value work undertaken.

Julia is known as “a formidable advocate with an excellent grasp of the law and ability to apply it to the facts of a case”. She has been described as being “a truly safe pair of hands in contentious probate and property matters. Clients absolutely love her, she is always very well prepared and is an excellent advocate.”

Simon McLoughlin
Call: 2009

Simon’s practice covers all areas of Commercial Chancery litigation and arbitration.

Simon is recommended in both the leading legal directories. Chambers & Partners (2023) notes that “Simon provides excellent advice which is to the point and succinct while also dealing with all of the necessary detail…[He] possesses an extremely sharp academic intellect yet also has outstanding commercial awareness.” and “…is a real team player who is great with strategy and advising on tactics.” The Legal 500 (2023) describes Simon as “Client friendly with good attention to detail” and having “…the ability to process large quantities of complex information with seeming ease. An old head on young shoulders, he is a barrister of choice by a long way.”

Simon regularly appears as an advocate in the High Court (Business & Property Courts) and in arbitration. He has particular expertise in disputes involving the consideration of valuation, accounting and other technical expert evidence.
