I qualified as a solicitor in 2010 at a regional firm in Bedfordshire, where I grew up. I then relocated to the South West in 2017, where I was a member of the Contentious Trusts and Probate Team at a firm in Taunton. I joined Porter Dodson in November 2021 as a partner.
I am a specialist in contentious trusts and probate, an area of law that covers challenges to the validity of a will or a trust document, claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, disputes as to the construction or rectification of a will, as well as claims against executors, personal representatives and trustees. Also, it encompasses claims relating to the beneficial interests in property, including by way of proprietary estoppel, resulting or constructive trusts.
I advise and represent individuals, charities, executors and trustees, both as claimants and defendants, in respect of contentious trusts and probate matters.
I seek to provide clear, understandable and accessible advice to clients, in an empathetic manner, in what is a complex area of law and deals with often very emotional matters. Further, I am a tenacious litigator, seeking to achieve the best possible outcome for my clients.
Outside of work, I am kept busy with three young children and two dogs. When I can, I enjoy cycling with a local club and watching rugby.
Chris Green is a quietly very able and intelligent contentious probate lawyer.
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.
