Wills and estates disputes

Disputes often arise around the distribution of an estate following a death.  Spouses, children or dependants of the deceased may believe that they were not properly provided for under the will, or that the will does not reflect the deceased’s intention.  Further disputes may arise over the conduct of the executor.

Whether you are an executor trying to meet your obligations, someone who believes they were not properly provided for under the terms of a will, or are a person concerned about the will being followed, we have the experience and knowledge to help. Email us today.

When acting for people contesting or challenging wills, we often act on a no win no fee basis, or at pay at the end basis.  When we act of the estate we generally act on the terms that delay payment until estate assets have been realised.

Prior to commencing the claim we will provide a costs disclosure which clearly sets out the fee arrangements.
