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.
