Our services to you:

Claims for financial provision

The Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 is designed to assist a certain category of people in relation to an estate of another if it is found that reasonable financial provision has not been made for those people that have been left out of a will entirely; or have not been left as much as they need.
 
Contact a member of our Private Client team now to find out how we can help you take out or defend a financial provision claim.
 

Will disputes

In order for a Will to be valid, it must comply with certain strict formalities.  You may feel that the Will was not executed correctly or have concerns that the testator (the person who has made the Will) did not have the requisite mental capacity to make a decision about their will or did not understand what they were signing or at worst, there was an element of undue influence.
 
Contact a member of our Private Client team now to find out how we could help you contest or defend a Will.
 

Claims for land or property

The legal concept of proprietary estoppel may assist you if you have been promised an interest in land or property and you have relied upon that promise only to discover that the landowner has broken that promise.

Estate and trust disputes
