Ryan Taylor is a Solicitor at Anthony Gold. He specialises in contentious probate and trust matters, working in the Business Services and Dispute Resolution department, based in our South London offices at London Bridge
Ryan has considerable and varied experience in the field of litigated estates, where he can advise clients in relation to beneficiary disputes, claims on estates and disputes on Wills.
Ryan began his legal career in Australia, where he was a Lawyer of the Supreme Court of New South Wales and enrolled Solicitor of the High Court of Australia – admitted as a Solicitor there in 2011. Ryan’s early work focused on estate and succession planning for clients, and administration of estates. This was provided in conjunction with business succession planning and testamentary trust advice for families and high net-worth individuals.
Ryan’s interest in litigation also led him to take on disputed estate work, where he acted for both claimants and in defence of estates in proceedings.
After making the move to the UK, Ryan started working at Legal 500 firm in Greater London where he dealt with civil litigation cases for a range of clients. Ryan’s background in estate work also allowed him to develop procedures to enable clients to administer estates of individuals where assets remain unclaimed; particularly assisting local authorities to deal with estates for adults social care recipients that had passed away in care, and any necessary claims that arose. Whilst working full time, Ryan also undertook the exams of the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme to requalify as a Solicitor of England and Wales, and was admitted as a Solicitor here, in addition to Australia, in 2017.
Ryan’s interest in working on estate disputes meant he soon returned to that field, working on contentious probate cases, estate administrations and estate planning within that firms’ private client team – developing their contentious probate practice. He now joins Anthony Gold to continue assisting clients with estate claims and disagreements.
