Francesca Quint and Tom Dumont selected for Chambers UK Top 100

Francesca and Tom have been included in the list of the top 100 junior barristers practisting at the Bar of England and Wales, which was published by Chambers UK yesterday.

The editorial comments as follows:

Such is Francesca Quint’s standing in the charities sector that she is regularly asked to advise on reform in this area. She gave advice to the Tumim Committee of the NCVO in 2001 and was a member of NCVO’s Advisory Group on the Reform of Charity Law in 2011-12. A junior with the practice of a silk, she has appeared in both of the leading cases looking at the public benefit question. This issue has dominated the charity law field following the change in the law that came about via the Charities Act 2006. “A lawyer with virtually unrivalled knowledge of her field,” she is “clear, consise, thorough, prompt and always professional” in her approach.

Tom Dumont has a highly successful traditional chancery practice. He handles trusts, wills and probate work, and is a noted expert in the charites sector. Of late he has undertaken litigation relating to the estate of Sir Malcolm Arnold, and has also appeared in a dispute concerning turkey magnate Bernard Matthew’s estate. The dispute centred on an argument about Matthews’ highly priced villa on the Cote d’Azur. His notaries say of him: “Tom is great – he gets the client’s concerns, becomes part of the team and delivers timely advice which is readily understandable by lay clients.”
