Head of Commercial Client Services and Head of Dispute Resolution
When someone dies plans for those left behind may not have been made perhaps because the death was sudden or simply because the deceased did not make a will. Even when plans have been made, the financial outcome may not be that which was intended or fair. In the appropriate circumstances, it is possible to make a claim against an estate of a deceased individual if it fails to make adequate financial provision for you.
Further, if you have suspicions as to the circumstances in which the will was made enquiries can be made with the possibility of declaring the will of no effect. Our experienced litigation lawyers within the Dispute Resolution Unit have acted for numerous individuals in similar situations and secured favourable results so that when something has clearly gone wrong a fair outcome can nevertheless be secured. Help from a solicitor can be invaluable.
