Josh’s international experience is principally in the field of trusts. He has been involved in a number of disputes relating to offshore trusts. In particular, he has experience of trusts administered in Jersey, both English law and Jersey law. He has given talks in Jersey and Guernsey about the PSC Register and its implications for individuals with significant influence or control over UK companies who organise their affairs through offshore trust and other structures.
He also has experience of commercial disputes involving foreign parties. Josh has appeared in applications challenging the jurisdiction of the courts of England & Wales under the Brussels Regulation. He is also fully familiar with the newly recast Regulation.
Josh is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. He has been appointed in a number of arbitrations, principally in property-related claims.
Josh speaks French, Spanish and Italian, which is often useful when there has not been sufficient time or justification to translate every available document. He is able to offer assistance from Chambers or locally.
Josh was admitted to the Bar of California in November 2015, having passed the notoriously difficult July 2014 bar exam. He continues to practise from Radcliffe Chambers in London and will be able to give advice in relation to Californian and cross-border issues.
