Contested Wills, Trusts & Estates

In recent years there has been a steady increase in disputes involving Wills, Trusts and Estates. There are three main factors that have driven this increase:

  • Longer life expectancy means more people are experiencing a decline in their mental faculties in their later years and are more vulnerable to third party influence
  • Increases in asset values, particularly land, mean there is more incentive to challenge arrangements involving inheritances
  • The way family structures have changed means that there are more competing interests for individuals to take into account when deciding how to divide their assets

Disputes involving Wills, Trusts and Estates need to be handled in a way that recognises the commercial realities as well as the emotional factors involved. Our specialist team have the necessary expertise to help guide you through the process of dealing with an estate or trust dispute, whether you are an executor or beneficiary defending a claim or an individual seeking to make a claim. Members of our team are qualified members of ACTAPS (Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists), which reflects the high quality and complex work we regularly undertake in this area.

Areas of Expertise:
