Contentious Trusts and Probate

Members of Lamb Chambers frequently advise on and appear in a wide range of proceedings relating to wills, probate and the administration of estates. Recent experience includes cases where the validity of a will has been challenged, capacity and undue influence, competing wills, the removal of executors and the construction of a will’s provisions.

We also advise on procedural and substantive disputes concerning lost wills, caveats and citations.

We offer advice and advocacy in relation to a broad range of trusts disputes, including:

– the drafting and interpretation of express trusts;

– implied trusts (such as constructive trusts arising out of unconscionable conduct);

– trusts of land under TOLATA;

– tracing claims;

– the administration of trusts; and

– disputes concerning the fiduciary duties owed by appointed trustees and other persons (such as solicitors) and claims for an account of profits.
