Profile:

David Lees is a dispute resolution solicitor specialising in Wills, Trusts and Probate disputes. He advises clients on challenges to the validity of Wills (such as lack of testamentary capacity, want of knowledge and approval, undue influence, forgery and fraudulent calumny); beneficiary claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependants) Act 1975 or proprietary estoppel; Trust/Trustee disputes and Executor disputes.

David is a pragmatic lawyer who always keeps a keen eye on the cost benefit of the dispute resolution process for clients.

He will always strive to settle cases early and by negotiation, often via alternative dispute resolution (such as mediation).

Recent Client Feedback:

From very first speaking to you on the phone, you did everything to reasure me and inform me of how things would proceed. I was on my own on the day of the mediation and was very nervous, but your phonecall on the morning to enquire how I was feeling really helped to calm me. Throughout the proceedings, as well as being very professional, you were also there to support me emotionally. I can honestly say I could not have got through the day without you and the support you gave me both professionally and emotionally. You treated me as person and human being not just a client. I thank you very much for everything.
