Druces Private Wealth

Contentious Trust & Probate

Disputes sometimes arise over Wills or in the context of family trusts or other inheritance matters. 

Our specialist team is expert in the handling of these often-sensitive cases. We regularly advise individual beneficiaries, executors and trustees as well as charities in finding solutions; sometimes defending and, in other cases, instigating legal action.

If you are facing such a dispute it is important to seek advice at the outset, to protect your position and to ensure that you do not miss any relevant deadlines.

“An experienced and insightful team with an excellent eye on client care and management.”
