CONTENTIOUS WILLS, PROBATE AND TRUSTS
At CooperBurnett, we have the experience and knowledge to support you with any contentious Wills, probate and trusts issues. For instance, we can advise you of your rights to challenge the validity of a Will, if you believe you have been unfairly left out of a Will, not been adequately provided for, or if you are acting as an executor and somebody else is contesting the Will.
We advise beneficiaries, trustees, executors and administrators in respect of disputes or litigation when Wills or probate arrangements are being challenged or need to be challenged.
At CooperBurnett, we can also support you through the grant of probate stage, preventing Grants from being issued; resolving disputes between prospective executors; obtaining limited Grants pending determination of disputes; subpoenas to establish existence/ content of Wills; and application of the Intestacy Rules
Our work also extends to Court of Protection work, including disputed Enduring Power of Attorney/Lasting Power of Attorney registration applications; disputed Deputyship applications; disputes over conduct of financial affairs; removal/replacement of Attorneys and Deputies.
Specialist services include:
• Challenges to Wills
• Grant of probate stage
• Claims against an estate
• Court of Protection
