We can support you in managing challenges to the validity, construction and content of Wills. We will lead or defend claims against an estate, those relating to the negligent drafting/administration of Wills, from the use of Lasting Powers of Attorney as well as where mental capacity and/or undue influence is questioned.

We also act for charities in defending the legacies left to them in Wills.

We can assist you with claims against trustees, those involving the misuse of trust assets or fraudulent activity, challenging the validity of a trust or its administration, including pension trusts.

We will manage applications to the Court of Protection and for court approval in the distribution of complicated estates, as well bringing or defending applications for the removal and/or replacement of trustees, personal representatives, attorneys and deputies.

We act on countless international and cross border disputes involving worldwide assets, offshore trusts and multi-jurisdictional parties and proceedings.
