  • Overview

    What service do we provide?

    Inheritance Act claims can arise where inadequate financial provision has been made for dependents under a will or as a result of there being no will. We can provide advice and assistance in all situations where a claim needs to be brought, or where a claim is threatened or proceedings are issued. We have experience in dealing with cases for claimants and defendants, and litigation involving children. We aim to ensure that disputes are settled as early as possible, thereby reducing costs and delay.

    The benefits of using a probate or a dispute resolution lawyer

    Claims can have a high financial cost and be damaging to family relationships, so whether you are making or defending a claim, consulting us early on in the process is essential. There are also strict time limits to be observed, and only certain categories of people can bring claims.

    Reducing the cost of Inheritance Act claims

    The best solution financially and emotionally is to avoid expensive and damaging court proceedings. We look at a number of possibilities.

    • Is the claimant entitled to bring a claim?
    • How strong is the case?
    • Has the claim been brought in time?
    • What assets can the Court take into account?
    • Can the case be settled before even starting court proceedings?
    • What about mediation?
    • Can we share the costs risk under a conditional fee agreement?
