The loss of a loved one can be one of the hardest and most distressing experiences to go through in life. If there is a dispute over a Will, Trust or an Estate this can become even tougher. Grant Saw have a dedicated team of experts who specialise in resolving such disputes.

- To protect your interest by lodging a caveat or seeking to remove a caveat.
Our specialist solicitors are on hand to advise you as to the best course of action and to discuss the funding options available. A ‘no win, no fee’ agreement may be available in some circumstances. We will always keep you regularly updated with cost and time estimates and will act in a proactive manner. We aim to provide practical solutions to achieve the best results for our clients.
We understand the sensitive nature of disputes regarding Wills, Trusts and Estates. Typically, family members are involved who have conflicting views and expectations regarding the intention of the deceased family member. These disputes can centre upon who is entitled to inherit in often complex family structures following remarriages, the existence of step children and parties cohabitating. Where the deceased has also made a ‘DIY Will’ this can also add to the list of complex issues, as the Will may be invalid or perhaps made as a result of undue influence having been exerted.
Our legal experts have experience in dealing with such issues in a sensitive fashion and can provide bespoke advice in a timely and cost effective manner. The Contested Trust and Probate Disputes team is accredited by Lexcel, the legal practice quality mark for client care, compliance and practice management.
