Legal 500 2022 - Dispute Resolution - Next Generation Partner -  "Largely by coincidence, Marc Seddon and I have been working together on three separate matters, one of which is highly complex, high value and multi-jurisdictional. Marc is a great support with a clear understanding of the issues and an ability to focus on what is important. His knowledge of Jersey trust law is excellent but he also has a sound feeling for the right approach to adopt in contentious circumstances. I hope to work with him further on other matters."
