Representation in a Range of Estate Disputes

Estate disputes can involve a broad range of disagreements but most often involve one of the following areas:

  • The meaning of the will — Who exactly is entitled to receive which property and when according to the wording of the document?
  • Executors' compensation — Executors are generally entitled to compensation but its determination often gives rise to uncertainty and sometimes disputes.
  • The valuation of bequeathed items — If property is to be divided evenly between beneficiaries, then the accurate valuation of property is highly important.
  • Executors' performance — Beneficiaries and executors can disagree on the handling of the administration of an estate.
  • Disputes between beneficiaries involving income vs. capital entitlements.
  • Multiple wills, overlapping wills and complex wills drafted in multiple jurisdictions and countries.
  • Allegations of undue influence, suspicious circumstances or other grounds to invalidate a will, trust or power of attorney.

We can assist in resolving estate disputes effectively and cost-efficiently.
