How can we help you to contest a Will?

We also provide expert legal advice and guidance on Court of Protection issues and trust disputes.


Resolving Inheritance & Will Disputes

We take a proactive, straight forward and jargon free approach to our advice on inheritance and Will disputes.

  1. React quickly when a dispute arises
    Swift action is necessary in inheritance and Will disputes, so it is best to consult with us as early as possible so that we can assess your claim and take steps to protect your position.

  2. Court proceedings are very much a last resort
    Our solicitors are committed to achieving the very best possible outcome for you in the most cost effective way, which often results in negotiated out of court settlements.

  3. An experienced team of litigators, should you need them
    If an out of court settlement is not possible, you will benefit from the team's extensive litigation experience, ensuring that you get expert representation and the best possible outcome.

We provide contentious probate advice to private clients nationally via our offices in London, Watford, Bristol and Birmingham. For clients based in North Bristol, we also have a dedicated office at 106 Henleaze Road.
