Inheritance Disputes Solicitors
The complex nature of probate can give rise to inheritance disputes and disagreements about how assets are distributed or who should benefit from parts of a deceased person’s estate.
We typically seek to resolve claims through sensible negotiation or mediation, only commencing litigation as a last resort. By taking a smart and measured approach to resolving claims we seek to minimise distress for our clients and keep costs under control.
Our experienced team of disputes specialists have considerable experience and expertise in the complex field of inheritance disputes. Our typical work includes:
- Acting for executors to defend unjustified or exaggerated claims made against the estate
- Challenging wills (often entered into close to the testator’s death) that disinherited clients believe were entered into under duress by a beneficiary or when the testator lacked capacity to understand the consequences of their actions
- Making claims against estates on behalf of people who were maintained by the deceased in their lifetime but for whose continued maintenance the will made no reasonable provision
- Acting for charities or other organisations who believe they are owed money from an estate.
