Trust Disputes

Trust disputes can be stressful and confusing to navigate. Our skilled lawyers can help you rectify the situation with ease.

Where a trustee or executor are being difficult, you may be able to apply to the court to have them extracted from their role.

However, it is important to note that the court will expect you to firstly attempt to resolve the dispute through an agreement being made.

Who can make a claim?

Typically, a beneficiary of the trust can make a claim. But you can actually make a claim whether you are one of the following:

  • A spouse involved in a divorce
  • Creditors (people or organisations that are owed money)
  • A trustee

Please note, this is just a list of the most common categories of people that can make a claim.

What we can do to help

If a trustee or an executor mismanages an estate, the beneficiaries can make a claim against them. We can offer legal advice and support whether you are a beneficiary, an executor or a trustee.

We can advise on the making and defence of claims and offer legal support throughout the process.
