A leading set specialising in commercial, construction, insurance and property law


We have expertise in all types of claim relating to the estate of a deceased person.  Our specialists can advise and represent you in all aspects of inheritance, related property issues, non-contentious and contentious probate work. We also have extensive experience representing minors in such disputes.

We recognise the emotional factors that accompany inheritance and probate matters and our barristers are particularly conscious of the need to work with the client and other members of the legal team to determine the client’s concerns and priorities.
