We have wide experience and practical knowledge of representing clients in claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975. We bring and defend claims on behalf of a broad range of individuals under the 1975 Act. We also have extensive experience of representing charity clients who rely on income from legacies provided under a Will.

Whichever side we represent, our disputes solicitors strive to help our clients achieve a settlement out of court wherever possible. If a settlement is not possible then we are tenacious litigators.

We have one of the UK’s leading teams in this area of work. Whether you feel you have been unfairly left out of a Will, not been adequately provided for, or you are acting as an executor and somebody else is contesting the Will, our specialist team can help.
