Property & Chancery
Cheryl Jones is an experienced Chancery barrister with a practical and down-to-earth approach to all her work, coupled with intellectual rigour. She also sits as a Recorder and a Deputy Bankruptcy Registrar, sitting in the High Court.
Cheryl read Law at Lancaster University, achieving a First Class Degree as a mature student. In all her work, Cheryl has a reputation of being able to explain complex concepts in an easily accessible manner and of being a barrister to whom clients find it easy to talk.
She has experience in all areas of Real Property, from easements to boundary disputes, and including priority of charges, but has a particular expertise in Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act claims, as well as claims in undue influence in property-related matters.
Cheryl taught Equity and Trusts at Westminster and has continued to teach and lecture in those areas, being invited to teach on judicial training days in the South-East. She deals with complex Trusts of Land Act matters, involving multiple parties and/or properties and has a high success rate in bringing and defending claims. This arises from her rigorous assessment of the law and the evidence - and her sometimes robust advice. Cheryl believes that strenuous efforts should be made in all cases to settle matters without the need for a trial, but is a fearless advocate for her client when it is clear that no sensible settlement can be reached.
Although Cheryl is officially located in the London Office of 3PB, and is particularly well placed to accept instructions in London, she also accepts instructions throughout the Midlands and in Bristol. She is computer literate, providing swift and lucid advices by email if so desired.
