Our Approach

We understand how difficult it can be when disputes arise as to how a person’s estate is being administered and how the assets of the estate are being distributed, if the terms of a Will are not what was expected or if a vulnerable person was persuaded to change a Will disinheriting you.

Perhaps you find out that a trustee or any other person controlling a trust administration has not been doing things properly or that trust property is under threat during a divorce. There are many things that can lead to contesting a Will after death. We have the experience and expertise to help.

Inheritance Dispute Solicitors

Different Types of Disputes

Maybe you are an executor of an estate faced with a claim from unhappy family members,  heirs or other next of kin under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975; perhaps a disagreement has arisen among beneficiaries regarding estate disposition or settlement; or there is a challenge to the validity of a Will, which might have been prepared under duress or undue influence.

These ‘contest a Will’ type disputes can be highly stressful to those involved so instructing a specialist solicitor at an early stage before parties become entrenched in their respective positions can take away much of the raw emotion. We are experts in matters of contentious probabe, estates, Wills and trusts and can help you to reach a resolution without litigation and in this way avoid the costs and delay inevitably caused by court proceedings.

How We Can Help You

We have acted for many clients involved in these types of disputes, from those who have been unexpectedly disinherited to those contesting estate planning documents and the distribution of the estate and seeking to clarify exactly what an estate’s assets are. We will help to protect your position and try to resolve the dispute quickly and, where appropriate, without resorting to litigation, whether you are a beneficiary, executor,administrator, a trustee or any other person such as a claimant under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependents) Act 1975, or a person challenging a Will for other legal reasons.

We will support you at every stage to ensure that what can be a stressful experience is dealt with as smoothly as possible without rancour and that all issues are resolved as soon as possible.

Don't Delay!

If left, challenges to a Will and the estate of a deceased person can become more difficult to resolve and even more upsetting for those involved and you may also lose your right to challenge the Will.
