Will, trust and estate disputes
Our specialist Contentious Probate, Trusts and Inheritance Disputes team work alongside our Wills and Probate team to provide comprehensive and sensitive advice tailored to your individual needs. We understand the complex and often distressing issues that can arise in disputes arising after the death of a relative and that there is more at stake than just money.
We advise beneficiaries, executors, administrators, trustees and charities on a wide range of disputes including:
- Will challenges
- Inheritance Act claims
- Administration disputes
- Removal of executors
- Trust disputes
- Lifetime gift disputes
- Will rectification applications
- Professional negligence actions
- Disputes about beneficial interests in property
- Proprietary estoppel claims
- Court of Protection or mental capacity disputes
- Uncontested applications
We provide a comprehensive and cost effective service by making use of the specialist expertise throughout the wider firm. We work hard to achieve a settlement out of court wherever possible and we regularly represent clients at mediation. However, if court proceedings are required we will pursue matters to a contested hearing.
Our team includes full members of the Association of Contentious Trusts and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS) and those recommended by the Legal 500.
