Inheritance, will & trust disputes

We appreciate that losing a loved one is an emotional time and it can be made even more stressful if a dispute arises over the validity of the will or the way the probate has been carried out. That is why we approach the matter with sensitivity and provide advice as to the best and most cost-effective resolution, and try to avoid court proceedings, if possible.

Whether you have concerns about the validity of a will, the way in which an estate or trust is being administered or have not received what you expected from an estate, Warners’ contentious private client solicitors can help. Our team of specialist contentious private client solicitors act on behalf of administrators, executors, beneficiaries and dependents and is able to deal with all aspects of private client disputes, including:

1. Contesting and defending a will, probate and estate disputes

2. Inheritance disputes and Inheritance Act claims

3. Professional negligence – claims concerning the negligent drafting of Wills by professionals

4. Disputes with the appointment and/or conduct of executors and administrators

5. Trust disputes

6. Court of Protection, attorney and deputy disputes


How our contentious private client solicitors can help you:

  • Meet with you to discuss your case and talk you through all of the available options.
  • Guide you through each step, whether you are making or defending a claim.
  • Try, where possible, to make sure disputes are resolved by negotiation and mediation rather than by incurring the cost of going to court.
