Private wealth disputes


Disputes arising from Wills, personal wealth, trusts, estates and mental capacity complicated and, by their very nature, arise out of difficult personal circumstances and the sensitivities of complex family situations. Our disputes and non-contentious lawyers work as one team to bring maximum expertise to our clients.

Where relevant, we draw upon the specialist skills and knowledge of our corporate, tax, fraud and asset recovery teams to provide a seamless service. Our aim is to see the whole picture and not just a piece of the puzzle saving time and money in developing the right strategy to resolve the dispute.

Each case is unique and highly personal. Advice is tailored to the facts. Often succession and trusts disputes involve assets and parties based in other jurisdictions. In such cases, we work with our colleagues in international offices and our Interlaw network of connected lawyers across the Globe, dealing with cross border disputes over worldwide assets, offshore trusts and multi-jurisdictional parties and proceedings. Our own longstanding presence in Middle East gives us vast experience of dealing with private wealth dispute resolution in those jurisdictions.

Whether clients are high net worth individuals and families or professional and private trustees, executors, personal representatives, charities, beneficiaries or financial institutions, we aim to deliver clear effective advice and strategies for resolution.
