We regularly advise on probate and estate administration matters and our technical knowledge and enables us to guide you through the different rules and decisions executors and trustees must deal with. As no two estates are the same, we offer a flexible service tailored to meet the needs of individual executors and trustees.
We are particularly skilled on helping trustees resolve trust disputes and have extensive experience with many different trusts of varying complexity and size. Our Litigation team will also counsel executors on claims brought against them by beneficiaries or third parties whether in ‘friendly’ disputes, where the court merely provides guidance on how best to resolve a particular trust or estate problem, or where parties are ‘hostile’, and the matter cannot be sorted out.
Estates can be very complicated, especially when there are multiple properties or international assets involved or complex wealth structures incorporating trusts and concerning complex questions of tax. We have the expertise to navigate the challenges.
