Christopher Unsworth

Senior Associate

Chris is a senior associate within our Wills & Trusts Disputes team. He qualified in 2009 having attended Leicester University, followed by Nottingham Law School. Following qualification, Chris moved to a large regional firm and then went on to further his experience working at a large international firm in London. After returning to Hampshire in 2014, Chris continued to develop his practice in contentious trust and probate disputes.

Chris brings with him big firm experience together with his ability to handle complex caseloads, a friendly approachable manner and a wry sense of humour. He is an experienced, level headed litigator who offers sound commercial advice and pragmatic cost effective solutions for his clients. He has been recommended in the Legal 500 for his “efficient case preparation and a sensible, practical approach to litigation”.

Chris specialises in dealing with trust and probate cases and regularly advises in connection with challenges to the validity of a will and lifetime gifts, claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, issues arising in connection with the administration of an estate or trust, Court of Protection applications and disputes between co-owners.

Chris was inspired to become a solicitor after watching Ally McBeal, but was subsequently disappointed to discover that life at a law firm isn’t as they show it on TV. Sometimes it can be much more surreal! A keen reader, Tolkien fan, and self professed ‘geek’, despite this he is a happily married man with a young son.
