Other areas of expertise include how wider tax and economic policy changes (such as the impact of the OECD's economic substance rules) can impact upon the use and enjoyment of luxury assets.
On the contentious side, Adam has handled a wide range of disputes (usually dealt with by way of arbitration) including numerous high value yacht construction and charter matters along with a range of other commercial disputes particularly those that are focussed on the proper construction of the underlying contract.
