Jack Foster

Associate

I specialise in commercial disputes including those concerning breach of contract, companies and partnerships, insolvency litigation and civil fraud.

About

I have recently qualified into the commercial dispute resolution team having trained with Fladgate for two years prior.

The clients I tend to work with include both corporate and high net worth individuals in various sectors. Most of the disputes I work on have an international element which although are often more complex, make the work interesting and varied.

Outside of work, my time is predominately taken up by sport. I play football in a league every week with my friends and I am a keen cyclist – regularly cycling at the weekend in an attempt to explore new areas in and around London. Although I no longer play, I am a dedicated supporter of my home team Exeter Chiefs and follow their performances throughout the season.

Trust disputes often present a very particular set of difficulties and legal issues, many of which derive from a trustee’s special responsibility as fiduciary. These may relate to how costs are dealt with, the protection of trustees from personal liability, breaches of trustees’ obligations and challenges over the administration of the trust.
