Rainer Hughes

Wills And Probate Disputes

We have considerable experience in advising on all aspects of Wills and Probate Disputes.

If you are Contesting a Will or have a Trust and Estate Dispute, please speak to us in complete confidence and allow us to assist you. 

Contesting a Will – Sometimes someone has been excluded from a Will and either disputes the validity of such Will or submits a claim against the Estate. Sometimes Executors take every opportunity to extend the period of time of their Executorship or take wrong decisions about how to manage the Estate. Often this is because either they or their Solicitors are not experienced with complicated issues that commonly arise. Rainer Hughes are well experienced in resolving disputes with Estates and have a considerable knowledge of the ACTPAS procedure for identifying issues and resolving them without having to incur the enormous expense of court proceedings. However, if such a resolution is unachievable then the Rainer Hughes Private Client Team are renowned for adopting a robust approach on behalf of the clients and have a consistent record of success.

Trust and Estate Disputes – Rainer Hughes are aware of the issues that affect clients and offer a free of charge consultation to identify those issues and set out the steps and the potential cost of rectifying them. In complicated cases we instruct Barristers who are well known to us for their excellence and diligent shared approach with the Rainer Hughes Private Client team. It is our expectation that a final resolution favourable to our clients is quickly and readily achieved.
