Inheritance, Wills & Probate

In the event of an unexpected death of a loved one, the validity of a will can be challenged and may give rise to family disputes, resulting in litigation. When court proceedings become necessary, we can ensure the estate of the deceased is distributed in a way you think is fair.
In the case of an unexpected death, family and friends are often left to find out whether their loved one had a will. Even when one exists, its validity can be contested or an underlying family dispute may give rise to challenging the will. Such issues are likely to result in litigation. Our experienced lawyers deal with these types of cases with tact and diplomacy to achieve the best result for you.We handle the following types of cases:

  • Disputed wills based on allegations of fraud, mental capacity, and undue influence.
  • Claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependents) Act 1975
  • Disputes involving Executors or Trustees
  • Negligently drafted wills and professional negligence claims
  • Disputed Powers of Attorney

Only a legally enforceable will can ensure that an estate is distributed according to the deceased’s wishes. If court proceedings become necessary, we will advise you on your entitlements and the likely outcome of such action, guiding you to ensure the best possible solution is reached.

We combine the skills of our experienced litigation and private client teams to ensure you obtain a full range of expert advice in relation to contentious probate, inheritance and disputed wills.
