Following on from the popular Channel 5 series Inheritance Wars, here’s you chance to meet Slee Blackwell’s very own inheritance wars lawyers.
When the Channel 5 programme aired it shone the spotlight on an often overlooked area of law. One that lawyers call ‘contentious probate law‘.
Contentious probate law is a field that we specialise in. In fact we have no less than seven qualified contentious probate lawyers, making us one of the largest teams.
Our ‘inheritance wars’ lawyers are led by Naomi Ireson, who featured in the latest edition of The Legal 500, where she is described as, “Quite simply perfect”.
Naomi’s fellow partner Hayley Bundey was also named in the publication, which included this testimonial from one of her clients:
“Hayley is, simply, an undoubted professional, showing compassion during what is a very upsetting time.”
Chris Hoten, the third partner in the team, deals with high value Inheritance Act disputes, and is developing a name for advising the LGBT community on the specific inheritance issues that they can face.
Solicitors David Lees, Sarah Coombs, Anya Hoyland and Jack Dray complete the team.
Although the programme has ‘wars’ in its title, we are always looking for cost effective, out of court resolutions, which, generally speaking, offer our clients the best outcomes. However, if we need to fight then we will do so. If you check out our lawyer profiles you will see that we have been involved in a number of high-profile contested court hearings, some of which have changed the law.
As well as bringing and defending claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, we also deal with invalid Wills. The most popular grounds for contesting the legal validity of a Will include undue influence, lack of mental capacity, want of knowledge and approval, and fraud and forgery. These are all areas in which we have enormous experience and an excellent track record of success.
So, if you find yourself caught up in a Will dispute and need expert help from experienced inheritance wars lawyers then get in touch with us. We operate a free helpline and have a range of funding options available, including No Win, No Fee.
