Stephen Caradus

Senior Associate

I am a litigation and disputes resolution specialist. I have experience across a broad range of areas and have acted in high value claims for insurers, financiers, receivers and private individuals.

I am particularly interested in trust and testamentary litigation and the complex issues that can bring. This includes winding up trusts, removal of trustees, fraud on trust powers, beneficiaries’ access to information, supervision of trustee actions, hostile litigation between beneficiaries, Family Protection claims and trustee applications for directions.

I have appeared at District Court, High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court levels. I look at client issues from multiple angles and try to achieve the best outcome for my clients whether through alternate dispute resolution or litigation.
