| Inheritance disputes and contentious probate

Contentious probate refers to disputes relating to the administration of a deceased’s estate. Unfortunately disputes between bereaved loved ones over an estate are common and wide-ranging.

Our team has a wealth of experience of dealing with all types of contentious probate claims including:

  • Disputed wills
  • Disputes involving trusts
  • Claims for removal of or sanctions against executors, administrators, or trustees
  • Inheritance disputes. For example, where you are a disappointed beneficiary; whether as a result of a will or the Intestacy Rules
  • Inheritance Act claims (IFPDA 1975)
  • Promissory and proprietary estoppel claims
  • Negligently drafted wills and claims against executors (professional negligence claims against will writers, solicitors and banks acting as trustees)
  • Disputed Powers of Attorney
