We are also referred work from other legal practices as sometimes cases come along which are very specialist and require an amount of experience to handle. We have the necessary experience to handle incredibly complex cases, most of which normal legal firms would shy away from. Not only do we take these cases on, we try our best to achieve the results our clients need. That’s why over the last five years we have taken various cases from firms of solicitors in regard to contentious probate matters, a number of which have an international element, where the previous firm have been unable to conclude matters.

Contentious Probate (Contesting A Will):

On my journey of specializing in Contentious Probate, and started working with winding up estates and running trusts. I found that I was very good at probate legal matters and decided to extend my knowledge in to the World of court proceedings. Having excelled further in court proceedings, I then decided to combine that with probate and trust matters. By combining these elements of my knowledge I soon found that I was able to offer a personalized service in contentious probate.

I also have experience in cross border jurisdiction which previous cases in Spain, France and Italy, to name a few.

My legal journey has also taken me to financial services, which started with policies stock and shares unit trusts I had to deal with within winding up estates and trust administration, all of which related to capital taxes. I began by selling life assurance products to the general public, through a broker, on a part time basis. I then moved in to working in-house for various major life assurance companies such as Norwich Union known now as Santander. I have also previously dealt with various claims against most major high street banks, and as such have been involved in litigation against HSBC, Barclays and Lloyds. This gives me the know-how necessary when dealing with the complicated World of financial products.
