Solicitor - Estate & Trust Disputes Specialist
TWM Solicitors LLP
I am currently on Maternity Leave.
In addition to advising on challenges to wills on the grounds of testamentary capacity, undue influence, lack of knowledge and approval and improper execution, I provide guidance in relation to disputes which may arise during the administration of an estate or trust. These can include challenges to lifetime gifting and allegations of proprietary estoppel. I also act for claimants and defendants on Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 claims.
I have a keen interest in Court of Protection work and assisting clients with disputes that involve a person who lacks capacity be it by way of a mental health issue, Alzheimer's/Dementia or a brain injury. This can include a challenge to the appointment of an Attorney or asking the Court to make a decision as to residence or treatment of an individual. I also make applications to the Court to approve Statutory Wills for incapacitated individuals.
