Contentious Private Client

Contentious Private Client

 

We have experience in dealing with trust and estates disputes. By becoming involved at an early stage we can provide practical solutions to defuse conflict. When court proceedings cannot be avoided, we ensure that they are conducted professionally, skilfully and as cost effectively as possible.

We recognise that many cases by their very nature involve members of the same family. With our sensitive and careful approach, we aim to ensure that family relationships are preserved throughout.

We advise on the following:

  • breach of trust claims
  • capacity issues
  • challenges to the validity of wills
  • claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975
  • disputes between trustees and beneficiaries
  • incorrectly administered estates
  • legacy disputes
  • removal of trustees
  • undue influence claims
