Sometimes disputes arise because a trustee, executor, attorney or deputy are not felt to be carrying out their duties properly.
Alternatively, sometimes trustees have to deal with an uncooperative beneficiary.
We are experienced in dealing with these matters to bring about effective resolutions for clients, using alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation where appropriate, and the court process where necessary.
We are also experienced in representing clients in disputed Court of Protection applications, such as applications for statutory wills and other financial and welfare decisions for incapacitated persons.
Members of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS) specialise in these areas of law and adhere to a code of conduct aimed at quickly and cost-effectively resolving disputes for their clients.
In some cases, we are able to offer funding arrangements such as no-win no-fee.
