You should be able to rely on a professional to provide the correct legal advice for wills, trusts and estate matters. However, sometimes things can go wrong and there may be a case for professional negligence.

Our experience in contested wills, trusts and estates means that we are perfectly placed to advise you if you have a claim for professional negligence.

In particular, our team have a proven track record in bringing claims against negligent professional advisers who have been negligent in the following areas:

  • poorly drafted wills;
  • poorly drafted trusts;
  • negligent probate advice;
  • negligent tax advice; or
  • any other professional negligence claim regarding contested wills, trusts and estates.

If you are looking to make a professional negligence claim that is not in relation to wills, trusts or estates then our team of professional negligence solicitors can advise you.
