Disputed wills, trusts & estates

Our Dispute Resolution team has extensive expertise in resolving disputes in this area, including:

  • Applications to vary the terms of a settlement
  • Claims against trustees
  • Disputes arising out of lifetime gifts
  • Claims over entitlement to a grant of representation to the estate
  • Claims relating to the validity of a Will
  • Actions against Personal Representatives
  • Disappointed beneficiary claims including claims for financial provision from the Estate under the Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependants) Act 1975
  • Court of Protection work

We respond rapidly and effectively to the needs of our clients, and as appropriate we propose Alternative Dispute Resolution, always mindful of the need to minimise legal fees, which can sometimes be mitigated by alternative funding arrangements.

Our team is recognised in The Legal 500 and praised for its “high level of success in difficult cases”.

We are members of the Association of Contentious Trust & Probate Solicitors.

We understand our clients’ needs and tailor our work to each set of circumstances, providing high quality, cost effective advice. We are a multi disciplinary practice and work collaboratively to provide a comprehensive service over all our practice areas.
