Private wealth dispute resolution


Disputes arising from family wealth, trusts and wills are complicated and, by their very nature, often arise out of difficult personal circumstances and complex family situations.  Our team has years of experience and knowledge dealing with these sensitive disputes and the legal issues involved.

Disputes involving families and their assets, both before or after death, can be very difficult for those involved and often raise a number of issues. The depth of our experience together with the breadth of specialist skills across the firm enables us to develop the right strategy to resolve your dispute. Our aim is to see the whole picture and not just a piece of the puzzle, saving you time and money.

Each case is unique and highly personal. Advice is tailored to the facts. We advise on all issues arising from the administration of trusts and estates, probate disputes and challenges to Wills. We also deal with issues of mental capacity and Court of Protection matters.

Often succession and trusts disputes involve assets and parties that are based in other jurisdictions. In such cases, we work with our colleagues in our international offices and our Interlaw network of connected lawyers across the globe, dealing with cross border disputes involving worldwide assets, offshore trusts and multi-jurisdictional parties and proceedings. Our long standing presence in Middle East gives us vast experience of dealing with private wealth dispute resolution in those jurisdictions.

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