Wills, Trusts and Estate Disputes

Unfortunately, disputes can arise in relation to the Wills or Estates of individuals in a variety of ways and very often these type of cases involve disputes between family members.

In these cases we will always give careful consideration to the family relationships as opposed to the  purely commercial considerations. We will always seek where possible to resolve your case by negotiation or mediation, therefore avoiding the need for expensive litigation. 

The Wills & Inheritance Dispute teams in Sheffield, Mansfield and Chesterfield are very experienced in dealing with contested Wills and claims under the Inheritance (Provision of Family and Dependants) Act 1975, for both claimant and defendant.  These type of claims arise where a person feels that a reasonable financial provision has not been made for them in the Will or intestacy of the deceased.  The 1975 Act allows certain categories of claimant to seek a reasonable financial provision from the estate, such as ex partners.
