Despite the making of a Will a wide variety of disputes can arise in relation to estates.
The prospect of litigation can hinder the bereavement process but our highly experienced team of solicitors are available to advise and guide you through what may at first appear a complex and emotionally charged set of circumstances towards a resolution.
We have substantial experience in both bringing and defending claims including where inadequate or no financial provision is available from an estate and challenging the validity of Wills.
In addition to representing private individuals, executors or beneficiaries we also receive instructions from the Administrators of estates, whether they are other solicitors, large and small trust corporations or Will drafting companies. Our specialist reputation results in our being instructed by clients both nationwide and abroad.
Our solicitors have forged close working relationships with specialist barristers over a number of years which ensure that our clients consistently benefit from the best legal advice available.
