Estate Litigation

In the estates and trusts field, a seemingly minor dispute can be very hard to resolve. Complicated legal issues combined with this highly-charged and emotional time can lead to difficult situations. The team at Shibley Righton LLP can help. We act for estate trustees and other fiduciaries, individual and institutional beneficiaries, as well as drafting solicitors.

Our lawyers can assist with the following branches of Estate Litigation:

  • Will Challenge / Will Interpretation Applications
  • Guardianship Applications
  • Passing of Accounts Applications
  • Solicitor's Negligence Claims
  • Removal / Replacement / Appointment of Estate Trustees
  • Rectification and Variation of Wills and Trusts
  • Claims Against Estates

As a full service firm, we regularly liaise with our Tax Group, our Real Estate Group, and our Wills and Estates Group in order to give our clients the most complete level of service. Together, we guide our clients by giving advice and opinions in an efficient, thorough, and cost-effective manner.
