Contentious probate

Disputes over a will or an estate can make what is already a difficult time even more stressful. Our specialist team offers expert advice and sympathetic support with a wide range of claims and disputes.

We have experience in all aspects of contentious probate including:

  • Challenging wills on various grounds including a lack of capacity, undue influence and ineffective execution
  • Claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975
  • Negligent execution of a will/administration of an estate

We act on behalf of executors, administrators, beneficiaries and dependants. Our aim is to meet our clients’ needs as quickly and effectively as possible.

We seek to achieve an early, cost-effective resolution for our clients through the use of pre-action protocols, deeds of variation and mediation.

We will always advise on the alternatives to litigation to enable disputes to be settled privately and without the cost of court proceedings.
