Probate Disputes

Probate Disputes

Bereavement is a difficult time, and there are occasions when issues arise in relation to provisions made by the deceased that can lead to conflict.

Our specialist Contentious Probate Team can help with any dispute arising out of a Will, a trust or the administration of an Estate.

Our Contentious Probate Team is headed up by Iwan Doull, one of only four members of the specialist Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Solicitors (ACTAPS) in Wales. The team deals regularly with trust disputes, claims under the Inheritance (Family & Dependants) Act, disputes relating to Powers of Attorney and cases in the Court of Protection.

Bearing in mind the circumstances in which these disputes arise, we actively encourage early ways of resolving disputes and our Dispute Resolution team includes an experienced mediator. However, if the matter has to go to Court, we have extensive experience of dealing with matters in the County and High Courts as well as the Court of Protection.

If you believe you may have a claim, you should seek assistance as soon as possible as delay could harm your claim. For example, if you may have a claim that you have not had a reasonable financial provision made for you in a Will, such a claim must be made within six months of the date when a grant of probate was obtained for that Will.

We will always aim to provide an analysis of the cost benefits to you of dealing with a claim and in appropriate circumstances will consider alternative fee arrangements such as a conditional fee agreement. If you would like us to consider your claim, without any obligation, please contact one of our specialist solicitors using the link provided.
