Wills and estates disputes are becoming increasingly common. If professional advice is not sought at an early stage then finding a resolution can become costly and stressful.
We act for executors, beneficiaries and often relatives who have concerns about Wills or estates. These range broadly in value and complexity, and include international cases.
You may find yourself in a situation where a relative wishes to challenge the provision that's been made in a Will. There may be a dispute about the capacity of the deceased at the time the Will was made, or allegations of undue influence resulting in unfair distribution of the estate.
Our breadth of experience means that we can help to resolve these and other disputes, such as the appointment or replacement of trustees. We identify the issues at an early stage and offer cost-effective and practical solutions. Where possible, we aim to resolve disputes by mediation outside of the courtroom.
