Success for Rogers and Norton’s Contentious Probate Team

22nd Jun 2020

It is sad that a dispute can arise following the death of a loved one. We are handling increasing levels of litigation in this area.

Judicial Review

A recent case saw our clients, brothers of the deceased, subjected to a claim for the entire estate by a party who alleged that she was a long term partner and that she and the deceased planned to marry. It was her case that she was left without reasonable financial provision from what was a sizeable estate.

On this occasion the contentious probate team were able to defeat the claim under The Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 (“the Inheritance Act“), and having scrutinised the evidence including bank records and social media postings.

Rogers & Norton’s contentious probate team have the knowledge and expertise to handle disputes of all levels and size. They combine the skills and talents of the private client team with the experience of the litigation team, to ensure the client achieves the best expert advice and outcome.
