Inheritance disputes - legal advice

Any dispute between family members has the potential to be stressful. So, when families disagree about something like a deceased loved one’s will, or an important family trust, we know that relationships are going to be strained.  

If you’re involved in a dispute like this, taking legal advice at an early stage can help smooth things over. Our dispute resolution solicitors can help preserve family relationships – and find a fair, workable solution.

How we can help you

At Tees, we know that handling disputes within families requires tact and diplomacy. But having an objective view can also help to take some of the heat out of the situation and help all sides to see things in a different light. Our inheritance and estate dispute lawyers are experts at handling disputes over wills, estates and trusts.

Not only are they very experienced in this specialised field, they’re also well aware of issues that can arise in such disputes, so they’re the ideal people to have on your side. They also know the law concerning estates, inheritance and trusts inside out.
