Stephen Baker, Senior Partner at Jersey litigation firm Baker & Partners, has won the prestigious Contentious Offshore Lawyer of the Year award from the Association for Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS).
Established in 1997, ACTAPS is an organisation for lawyers specialising in contentious trust and probate work to exchange experience and knowledge of the law in this specialist area, and to promote the enhancement of the specific skills and expertise needed in contentious trust matters.
To win the contentious offshore lawyer of the year award, nominees must provide evidence of outstanding excellence in his/her contentious trust practice. The award also takes into account excellence in management and strong teamwork of the nominee.

“I’m honoured to have received this award from ACTAPS, a significant industry body in contentious trust and probate law. Following an extremely successful 2015 for all of us at Baker & Partners, I’m delighted to receive recognition for my particular area of practice.”
