    Contested wills, trusts and estates

    With an ageing population, changes to family arrangements and greater wealth, families are finding it more and more difficult to balance the needs and expectations of their families when it comes to distributing their assets. The result is an increase in inheritance and will disputes. Our specialist lawyers can help.

    Disputes do unfortunately arise and they are often between family members. We understand that this is a very emotional and distressing time and that disputes can be very demanding.

    Whether you are contesting a will, want to make a claim under the Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependants) Act 1975 or have a problem with how the estate is being administered, we will take the time to understand your needs and objectives, tailoring our advice to suit your circumstances.

    We can also help if you are an executor, trustee, personal representative or beneficiary facing a claim about a will, trust or estate.

    With experience in both pursuing claims and defending them, our Contested Wills, Trusts and Estates Team is able to assist you with the dispute, no matter what the issues may be. Whatever position you find yourself in, we are here to help alleviate the pain and resolve issues quickly before they escalate.

    No matter the dispute, our team will take the time to understand the issues and advise you on your options. We will always consider the commercial aspect of any claim and discuss the choices available to you, aside from making a claim in Court. You can read more about these in our alternative dispute resolution (ADR) section.

    I would like to say a big thank you to yourself and Danielle Luke for all your hard work. My wife and I will be eternally grateful to you and your team. Thank you again.


    I am so grateful for your support throughout this matter. From the first moment you were involved I felt that I was in safe hands. Your communication skills are second to none. I particularly liked the firm but courteous manner you dealt with the other solicitors particularly when they were wrong about the process. Many thanks.

    Efficient communication, approachable and no fuss advice.
    Mr A Robinson
