Estate and Trust Litigation

It is never an easy decision to challenge an estate, nor is it easy to act as an executor in an estate that is being challenged.

We have considerable experience acting both for executors and for family members who wish to challenge an estate. If you are thinking about challenging an estate, we fully adhere to the voluntary ACTAPS code and can advise on the merits of your claim, the timeframes you need to be aware of, and the cost and time implications.

If you are acting in an estate that is being challenged, we can advise on your duties of disclosure, and how to steer through the potential minefield of litigation whilst discharging your fiduciary duties to the estate and its beneficiaries.
