The passing of a partner, parent or loved one, is distressing and an emotionally charged time for all involved. Stress and emotions can be raised further when a will is challenged and claims are made by others for a share in the estate or by existing beneficiaries to increase their share, which they already stand to inherit.

Property and money can also be left to individuals in a trust which takes such trust property or funds outside the scope of the deceased’s estate. Again, such trusts can give rise to dispute after the death of the settlor.

We specialise in contentious probate disputes such as:

Claims under the Inheritance Act (provision for family & dependants) 1975

  • Children

  • Relations

A trust can be contested for many of the same reasons as a will, including lack of testamentary capacity, undue influence, or lack of requisite formalities.
