Contentious probate: our practical approach

28th September 2023The Society of Will Writers0

In everyday life people generally try to avoid litigious situations. But sometimes that is simply not possible, and specialist advice is the only way to resolve a contentious probate issue, achieve closure and allow an individual or family to move on.

At Meridian, our advisory approach is pragmatic. From the outset we make clear the likely risk and reward of beginning litigation, evaluate evidence obtained, help clients address key issues and aid decision making on how best to proceed.

Members of the Association of Contentious Trust & Probate Specialists (ACTAPS), our team has a wealth of experience in the contentious probate and property litigation field. With a six- strong solicitor team supported by two paralegals, we provide agile advice and support in what can often be a very fast-paced yet prolonged area of law.

On 9 October, partners Mark Abrol and Mark Terrar, together with Senior Associate Emma- Louise Green, will share their insights into how adopting best practice can help avoid or minimise the chance of contentious probate issues arising. As the founding members of Meridian’s contentious practice, they will offer lively and varied perspectives on will drafting, informed by 40-plus years of contentious probate experience.
