Slee Blackwell’s team of contentious probate solicitors recommended by the latest edition of The Legal 500
Slee Blackwell’s specialist team of contentious probate lawyers has been recommended by the 2024 edition of the hugely influential guide to the legal profession, The Legal 500.
The Legal 500 highlights the practice areas where lawyers are providing the most cutting edge and innovative advice. Rankings are based on feedback from 300,000 clients worldwide and it is put together by independent researchers who have unrivalled experience in the legal market.
The publication describes our team as ‘thoroughly knowledgeable’, saying that we are well placed to advise clients on a range of contentious probate disputes, including Court of Protection cases and TOLATA claims.
In a highly complimentary narrative The Legal 500 singles out head of department Naomi Ireson who, it says, is noted for her extensive experience handling TOLATA (Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996) cases.
Partner Hayley Bundey is also mentioned in the guide, describing her as ‘excellent‘, and a ‘prolific adviser on contentious probate work‘.
The team’s Work Highlights are featured and include three cases that we won at trial in the previous 12 months, namely:
- an equitable accounting case;
- an estoppel claim; and
- a trust dispute.
A number of testimonials were also published which we are particularly proud of. These include the following:
- “Naomi Ireson stood out as efficient and helpful.“
- “The strengths of the team is their ability to be thoroughly knowledgeable, stand for no nonsense, and do their absolute best for their client.”
- “My experience of the firm as a whole was very positive. Hayley Bundey particularly stood out.”
“It’s a massive compliment to our tremendous contentious probate team to be included in The Legal 500,” said Naomi. “I am proud of each and every one of our lawyers. This would not have been possible without their hard work and dedication.”
