This can be particularly true if the estate was not dealt with properly, as a result of which, disputes and claims can arise. Our specialist Will dispute and contentious probate solicitors can help to resolve any issues that may have arisen.

It can also involve claims against beneficiaries who feel they have been wrongly left out of a Will or are concerned about the way in which their inheritance has been managed by an executor or administrator.
