William Moffett

| Call 2000

Profile: International

Experience and Expertise

Much of William’s work involves an international element. He frequently acts for or against parties outside the UK and his work often involves questions of the proper law governing a contract, jurisdiction, and the interpretation and effect of regulations and conventions concerning enforcement of judgments.

This international element spans the entire scope of William’s practice, from commercial litigation to private wealth, estates and trusts (such as estates and settlements including property in more than one jurisdiction) which often involve questions of private international law and the conflict of laws.
