Contentious probate and trust cases are always in the news and the more sensational cases are increasingly finding themselves in the mainstream news especially when they are salacious. Here is a summary of some recent Contentious Probate and Trust cases…
A personal representative is either a person or business (such as a firm of solicitors) who is appointed as an executor in a will, or who will administer the estate of someone who has died without making a will.
Acting as a personal representative brings with it strict obligations and, as specialists in this field, we can provide reassurance, advice and guidance where a personal representative is unsure of how to act or where a dispute arises. In certain situations an application to court may be made for direction as to how to act.
If you find yourself in this situation, or are a professional requiring more specialist advice, we’ll offer as much or as little input as you need to ensure you discharge your duties quickly and correctly.
