Contentious Probate at The Wilkes Partnership

At The Wilkes Partnership, our Contentious Probate department also specialists in disputes relating to Court of Protection issues and in professional negligence claims.

In relation to the Court of Protection, we advise on disputes between attorneys, between donor and attorney and between other interested parties. Such disputes can relate to the donor’s capacity, well-being or suspected financial abuse.

We also act for claimants against professional advisers such as other solicitors, accountants, tax and other financial advisers particularly in the context of a deceased’s estate. Some recent examples include acting for a disappointed beneficiary who did not receive an inheritance due to a solicitor’s failure to sever a joint tenancy and acting for an executor of an estate facing a significant inheritance tax bill due to incorrect tax advice given to the testator by an accountant.
