We have a dedicated private client litigation team enabling us to provide an integrated contentious trusts and estates service.
This includes applications to remove executors / trustees and dealing with trust governance concerns. It also includes estate disputes whether involving claims of spouses or children, or issues concerning the validity of a will, undue influence or creditor claims.
We advise on will challenges, will disputes and in cases where a will or inheritance is being contested under Section 117 of the Succession Act.
We have experience both acting for claimants, who are contesting their inheritance or have been left out of a will, and for trustees who are facing will challenges. Inevitably tax is an important feature of trust and estate disputes and we offer unrivalled experience in the market.
