We focus on resolving matters quickly and ideally without court proceedings. However, if court can’t be avoided then we are highly experienced in successfully representing clients at court and fight hard to protect their interests while offering pragmatic and constructive advice.

We appreciate the difficulty of contesting a will in the UK. Three of our experts are members of ACTAPS and we will tailor our legal advice and guidance to your individual requirements.
