Disputed wills, trusts and estates

Disputes over inheritance can be delicate, and we have a long history of settling them with sensitivity. In fact, the Legal 500 recognises us for our ‘high level of success in difficult cases’.

Sometimes we recommend alternative dispute resolution (ADR) – that is, non-court methods like mediation – for a faster, confidential and more cost-effective way to get the best possible result for our client.

Our work includes:

  • All varieties of claims over a will’s validity, including claims relating to testamentary capacity, undue influence, forgery and lack of knowledge and approval
  • Disputes between executors of trustees and beneficiaries
  • Applications to vary the terms of a settlement
  • Claims against trustees
  • Disputes over lifetime gifts
  • Claims over entitlement to a grant of representation
  • Actions against personal representatives
  • Disappointed beneficiary claims
  • Claims for reasonable financial provision from an estate pursuant to the Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependents) Act 1975
  • Applications for statutory wills
  • Court of Protection disputes and claims relating to vulnerable adults.

We’re members of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Solicitors (ACTAPS).
