Supporting trustees, executors and beneficiaries with contentious trusts & probate disputes sensitively and effectively
CONTENTIOUS TRUSTS & PROBATE
Disputes over wills and probate are sadly on the rise. Dealing with the estate of a loved one can be a very distressing time. This can be made even more difficult if there is a dispute over the estate or you believe that it’s not being distributed as it should.
We are experienced in supporting trustees, executors and beneficiaries. Our team includes a Member of The Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists, who can help in obtaining a fair and reasonable outcome.
Our approach to resolving contentious probate disputes
We deal with claims in an appropriate, sensitive and empathetic way whilst ensuring we also get the best possible outcome for you.
It may sometimes be appropriate to negotiate and mediate a dispute, especially if relationships need to be preserved; at other times court action may be necessary. We will always deal with contentious probate claims in the most cost effective and appropriate way.
We deal with any type of contentious probate dispute, for example:
- Disputes arising under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, where a beneficiary has not been left reasonable financial provision under the will
- Disputes relating to the validity of a will, including capacity issues, fraud and/or undue influence
- Removal of personal representatives
