Property and Estates
Hugh-Guy is a property and estates barrister with a keen interest in the interaction of the law of real property with the deeply personal issues of those interested in or affect by property rights.
Hugh-Guy has an academic insight as well to property law and disputes, having achieved a very high distinction in Land Law in the Graduate Diploma in Law, his essay on land registration and indefeasibility being shortlisted for the prize in Land Law. Before coming to the Bar, Hugh-Guy was a funded PhD researcher at Cambridge University (Queens' College) under the supervision of Professor Martin Dixon. His research concentrated on jurisdictional issues concerning the First Tier Property Tribunal Land Registration Division. This has given Hugh-Guy an in-depth understanding of the workings of the first tier tribunal as his research involving detailed study of the cases of the tribunal and its judges.
Hugh-Guy wrote an article on the First Tier Property Tribunal’s Land Registration Division which was published as a case note in the July 2016 edition of the Conveyancer and Property Lawyer.
