The Attwaters Jameson Hill Dispute Resolution team has intimate first-hand experience of representing claimants who believe they have lost out under a Will, as well as defendant executors who, as trustees of the Estate are responsible for acting in the best interests of all the Will’s beneficiaries.
Either way, disputes of this sensitive nature often coincide with much soul-searching and high emotion.
This is why Attwaters Jameson Hill’s Dispute Resolution team is here.
We pledge to provide every client with outstanding personal service and communication, unrivalled industry knowledge and a proven track record of successfully settling probate and Will disputes.
There are numerous reasons why Will disputes and challenges arise. These include:
- claims that the deceased promised or should have made additional provision for them
- the deceased did not have legal mental capacity when they made the Will
- someone unduly influenced the deceased into making the Will
- correct legal formalities were not observed when signing the Will
- factual errors in the Will
- lost Wills
- disputes with or between the Will’s Executors
