    Location: Taunton         Position: Partner

    Team: Contested Wills, Trusts and Estates

    Specialism: Administration disputes, Burial disputes, Inheritance disputes, Trustee/executor disputes, Will validity claims/disputes

    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.

    Chris Green was very patient and helpful and answered my questions and concerns clearly and thoroughly.
