Guy Perkins, Partner and Head of Dispute Resolution
Guy is Head of the Dispute Resolution department at TWM Solicitors and specialises in Wills, Estate Administration & Distribution Disputes (also known as contentious probate), and Court of Protection cases. This is a specialist area of law and consequently he undertook further training, which led to his qualifying as an Associate Member of ACTAPS (Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists) and subsequently as a full Member in 2009.
Guy has worked in Dispute Resolution since he qualified in 1983. Before deciding to specialise in Wills and inheritance disputes and Court of Protection cases, he undertook a wide range of cases including personal injury; partnership disputes; intellectual property disputes; building disputes; property disputes; landlord and tenant; and libel.
Guy is ranked in Chambers UK and The Legal 500. The latter says Guy has "excellent client care skills" and "keeps a sense of proportion in the case".
He regularly writes articles on Wills and inheritance disputes and Court of Protection, which are published in national and more local periodicals.
Guy’s interests include sailing and travelling to the remoter parts of the world.
