Our clear, strategic and focused advice maximises the chance of your charity achieving a favourable legacy dispute outcome.
By working closely with your legacy officer, we establish a balance between defending your position and settling a dispute, our solicitors minimise your susceptibility to potentially damaging publicity of legacy litigation.
We also minimise risk and legal spend by providing bespoke packages that deliver high-quality, tailored advice. Understanding that the costs involved in taking a claim to court can be high, we frequently utilise alternative dispute resolution methods to prevent the escalation of fees.
We work with several nationally-recognised charities, advising on a wide range of legacy dispute issues.
Our legacy experts frequently support charities in resolving legacy fraud, beneficial interest claims, Inheritance Act claims, proprietary interest claims and trustee and executor disputes.
Understanding that legacy disputes often involve multiple legal disciplines, our dispute solicitors are closely-supported by other specialist teams, such as our Wills, Probate, Tax & Trusts team, enabling solutions to be achieved collaboratively, promptly and efficiently.
Strongly believing that legacy dispute prevention should be your first priority, we regularly deliver workshops and training seminars for charity staff, raising awareness of important legal and practical issues whilst avoiding conflicts. In addition, we frequently support will writing schemes such as Free Wills Month and the National Free Will Network.
