Contesting a will

Contesting a will can be complex and distressing. Our specialist will dispute solicitors resolve disagreements as quickly as possible. We are one of the largest and most experienced teams of lawyers in the country and we deal with all manner of inheritance disputes – including instances involving multi-party defendants, or when executors themselves are at loggerheads. We act for both claimants and defendants. 


You may have a number of questions, “Can I challenge a will? Do I need to use solicitors to contest a will? What should I do if I think I can make an inheritance claim? How long can contesting a will take?”


We listen to your instructions carefully, answer your questions and guide you through the process step by step.


We understand that, for many of our clients, contesting a will is a last resort. We also appreciate you may want to stay in touch with those involved in the dispute afterwards. You can rest assured we will handle your will dispute with care and sensitivity.


As all our solicitors belong to the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists, you will receive advice from an expert lawyer. Our team is ranked number one by one of the top independent legal directories The Legal 500.


Payment terms are arranged to suit your circumstances; in many cases we offer fixed fees, deferred payments, or no win, no fee terms.


Our lawyers are based in Tunbridge Wells and Kings Hill, Kent and in Covent Garden, London.  Whilst many of our clients are from the South East (including Kent, Sussex, Surrey and London), we act for clients based throughout England and Wales and from abroad. We are always willing to meet with our clients at any of our offices or at home or their place of work. We also meet with clients via online communication channels, such as SKYPE or video conferencing. Wherever our clients are based, we ensure we communicate with them in a way that suits their needs.
