Will Disputes

There are several different types of will disputes but in the main they relate to the validity or otherwise of a particular will or group of wills. Our aim is to provide clear advice and assistance on will challenges that are based on will execution failures, claims of mental incapacity of the will maker, allegations against others for exerting undue influence on the will maker, revocation of wills by marriage/destruction, claims of fraud or forgery to name but a few.

This is a specialist area where careful consideration of the merits of the various claims, how they interrelate and importantly what the effect of such a challenge being successful or not would be.

The costs involved in such challenges are dealt with openly and various different methods of funding are available on a case by case basis – this may include fixed fees, deferred payment arrangements and “no win, no fee” agreements.

The team is led by Martin Holdsworth, one of only 3 lawyers recognised outside London as a specialist in this area of law by Chambers and Partners 2014. He has been recommended by the Legal 500 for the last 5 years and is a national committee member of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS). For an initial no-obligation discussion about your case and funding options, please do not hesitate to contact him on 0113 3804571 or martin.holdsworth@jonesmyers.co.uk.
