Charles Ferguson | Partner
Charles Ferguson founded the firm of Ferguson Solicitors in 1997, which in July 2015 merged with Spring Law.
Charles qualified as a UK solicitor in 1971 and, after completing his articles with Holman Fenwick & Willan, spent most of the seventies with Johnson Stokes & Master in Hong Kong where he specialised in shipping litigation.
After returning to England in 1984, he set up in practice, where, after “big bang” he gradually developed a following among City traders and professionals.
He went on to build one of the most respected niche practices in the City and is currently ranked in Chambers and Partners 2016. He continues to be engaged in a wide range of City-based disputes and contract negotiations. Charles is said never knowingly to have understated a client’s case, but nonetheless has the knack of settling most of the disputes which he handles. Charles is well known in the legal market for his litigation expertise and regularly advises individuals employed in the banking sector with one source quoting that he ‘does well for his clients because he makes life difficult for the other side’.
