About Mr. Dakis Hagen QC
Since being instructed as specialist Chancery counsel in Charman v Charman, Dakis Hagen QC (of Serle Court in London) has appeared in virtually all the highest value English matrimonial cases involving international trust structures, including Tchenguiz-Imerman v Imerman, Hagen v Hagen and Akhmedova v Akhmedov (the latter generating the largest ever financial remedy award in British history). When in 2018 Chambers & Partners introduced a new category for Family/Matrimonial: Trusts/Tax Experts, Dakis was ranked as the sole ‘Star Individual’ in England. Comments in the editorial include that ‘There’s no other chancery barrister with the same level of experience and understanding of how the family division works’, and that he is a ‘Superb advocate for cases concerning the intersection between family and chancery law, who is regularly instructed in the largest and most ground-breaking of cases’. In 2014 Dakis was named Chancery Junior of the Year at the Chambers Bar Awards and in 2018 he was nominated for Chancery Silk of the Year. As well as appearing frequently in London, since taking silk he has appeared as leading counsel in Gibraltar, BVI and Bermuda and will be appearing in a major matter in Cayman in July.’
