Angela Togher

Senior Associate, Dispute Resolution and Litigation

How can I help you?

I joined Tees in December 2023 as a senior associate in the dispute resolution and litigation department, having worked for various London firms since I qualified in 1994. I started my career undertaking general commercial litigation, in more recent years, I have concentrated on my specialist areas of contentious trusts and probate and property litigation.

Delivering what you need

In all matters, I adopt a considered and commercial approach. I appreciated that in contested trust and probate matters, clients are often going through an emotionally difficult time and need support as well as sound legal advice.

I always endeavour to resolve disputes through negotiation and mediation. However, when court proceedings are necessary, I have 30 years of experience in the County Courts, High Court, First Tier Tribunal Property Chamber and Court of Appeal.

The areas of law I typically practise in are as follows:

Contentious trusts and probate

  • Disputes arising out of lifetime transactions  - claims regarding, undue influence, capacity, and joint ownership.
  • Court of Protection – statutory wills, accounts and misappropriation.
  • Claims under the Inheritance ( Provision for Family and Dependants ) Act 1975.
  • Challenges to will include (i) Construction and rectification of wills and (ii) claims about the validity of wills, including revocation clauses, testamentary capacity, knowledge and approval, fraud,  and undue influence.
  • Claims against personal representatives – accounts and enquiries, breach of trust and fiduciary duty, removal and substitution. 
  • Disappointed beneficiaries – proprietary estoppel and constructive trust claims.
  • Mutual wills
  • Construction, rectification and variation of trusts.
  • Applications under Trustees of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996.

Property litigation

  • Landlord & Tenant disputes ( Residential and commercial) – possession claims, rent arrears, repairs, dilapidations, business lease renewals
  • Nuisance
  • Trespass
  • Adverse possession
