We are one of the leading contentious trust and probate teams because we listen, we ask the right questions and we tailor our advice to make sure your dispute is resolved in a timely and cost effective way.

We help those involved in disputes relating to inheritance, trusts, probate or lack of mental capacity to find clear, practical solutions.

When you are involved in a dispute, you want to secure a satisfactory resolution as swiftly as possible. In these cases, emotions tend to run high, particularly if there are financial pressures on family and dependants or if executors and trustees are being held to account by individuals who are grieving. We understand the stress this can cause and will support you as we find solutions. Sensitively managing complicated personal or financial issues, high value estates and trusts, or cases with an international element is what we do best.

Whether we’re using Alternative Dispute Resolution techniques such as mediation, or if court proceedings are inevitable, your team will be drawn from the leading experts in this field. That includes members of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS), the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP), the Association of Corporate Trustees (TACT) and the Office of the Public Guardian panel of approved deputies.

Our clients range from high net worth individuals, professional and corporate trustees and financial institutions to insurers and professional intermediaries such as accountants and other solicitors. We also advise farmers and landowners in relation to the sometimes unique disputes that can arise between landowning families.
