Our specialist contentious probate lawyers can help you with contesting a will, Inheritance Act claims, and probate and trust disputes.
Whether you are a trustee, an executor or a beneficiary, we will carefully guide you through the entire estate dispute process. We tailor our approach for every claim or potential claim, based on its specific and unique circumstances and will provide a balance of understanding and practical advice to ensure matters are dealt with as smoothly as possible to reach the best resolution.
Appreciating that taking a claim to court can be costly, we focus on resolving matters without the need for court intervention where possible, using alternative dispute resolution methods to bring estate dispute claims to a successful conclusion whilst minimising costs, risk and stress.
However, if court intervention is necessary, you can rest assured that we have some of the best litigation lawyers in the country.
Our team of experts are highly experienced and regularly deal with all types of will and estate disputes arising from a variety of situations.
We frequently advise on cases such as dealing with invalid wills, issues arising from negligent will drafting, undue influence, losses arising from probate fraud or forgery, issues relating to lack of mental capacity and problems arising from executors failing to carry out their duties properly or effectively.
We also have considerable experience in dealing with large and complex estates, particularly where rural and agricultural property is involved or assets are held in different countries.

“Flint Bishop was recommended to me to assist me in dealing with a contentious will issue. I found the firm, especially Kirsten Wood and Lorna Trueman, to be very helpful, experienced and at the top of their respective professional disciplines. I could not have achieved the final outcome without them going that extra mile to deliver a satisfactory outcome. I have been very satisfied and would not hesitate to recommend the firm especially Kirsten and Lorna in the future.”
