Hugo Mason:

Trainee Solicitor

Hugo Mason is a second year trainee solicitor currently sitting within the Media Litigation team.

This is Hugo's third seat and he is currently working on matters that include high profile defamation, reputation management, privacy and intellectual property.

Hugo's second seat was Commercial Litigation. Here he worked on commercial disputes across a wide range of business sectors including Art, Technology, Finance and Construction. A lot of his work in this team had a strong international element, involving high-level jurisdictional and procedural issues.

In his first seat, within our Residential Development team, he assisted our developer clients with issues across the complete life cycle of a development. This included due diligence on potential acquisitions, advising on certain design aspects, handling the sale of specific  units and parcels of land, drafting licences to assign and sublet, as well as managing the sale of the ground rent reversion of larger developments.

Random fact

Hugo once challenged Lee Haskins, (then) reigning British and Commonwealth Super Flyweight champion, to a charity boxing match. It didn't end well...
