Estate Administration

We know it is always difficult when you lose a loved one, particularly if you are an executor of the will and so responsible for the administration of their estate. We guide you through the process with sensitivity as well as providing first class advice on the legal requirements.

Our specialists support you through even the most complicated estate administration – helping you handle the deceased’s assets, tax matters and applying for probate. Even if unexpected complications occur, we have the expertise to help. We have extensive experience of disputes and claims on the estate, trusts (including offshore trusts), and complex succession matters relating to businesses or landed estates.

With disputed wills increasing our specialist contentious probate and trust disputes team can provide expertise on matters including claims for removal of executors and trustees, breach of trust claims, executor disputes, professional negligence claims and disputed powers of attorney. All of our work is undertaken within the code of conduct set by ACTAPS to ensure high practice standards.
