The death of a loved one can be an incredibly difficult time. Emotions run high and whether or not a Will was in place at the time of death, disputes may still arise. Disagreements occur for a variety of reasons. Someone may feel they were unfairly left out of the Will, there may be questions about the actions of an executor, or how a trust is being looked after.

Contesting a Will

Challenging a Will or contesting its validity is a complex area as a person’s wishes at the time of their death are rightfully protected by law. However, there are circumstances where a claim can be made. We have extensive specialist experience dealing with a range of Will disputes and a very strong track record of securing the outcomes desired by our clients.

Proper management of a trust

Trusts are usually created to manage property, wealth, and other assets in a way that protects the best interests of the beneficiary. Unfortunately, disagreements can occur between trustees and beneficiaries regarding how a trust is being managed. There are a number of ways that trust disputes can be resolved. Our experts can talk you through all your options and discuss the best way forward to achieve the outcome you want.

Attorney and Deputy disputes

An Attorney or Deputy is appointed to make decisions for someone when they are no longer able to do so themselves. They must act in that person’s best interest when making decisions about their finances or personal care. If you have concerns about the decisions an appointed Attorney or Deputy are making, or a claim has been made against you, then we can provide advice on the best way forward.
