Something as seemingly insignificant as including a trust or inheritance in an asset list can indicate that they are up for grabs. This is a fast moving and changing area of law which we at Blanchards Law monitor closely to give our clients the best advice possible.
Challenging a Will can seem very distasteful and is certainly not to be taken lightly, not least from a legal costs perspective. We can help you to try to mediate the issues and use alternative dispute resolution where possible. If a court application is necessary to contest a Will or to deal with an intestacy (someone dying without leaving a Will), we can assist in a sensitive but proactive way to get the proceedings on foot, or defend them if you at the sharp end of them.
We have used specialist Chancery barristers to assist clients where appropriate and to ensure speedy advice is obtained.
