Professional negligence claims relating to Wills, trusts and estates


Negligence claims against solicitors, Will winters and other professionals will most often arise in the following situations:

  • There was a delay in drafting a Will and the testator died before the Will was signed.
  • A Will is made for a testator who lacked mental capacity, knowledge and approval of the will, or was unduly influenced.
  • There is an error in the way the will was drafted and it does not accurately reflect the wishes of the testator.
  • Incorrect tax advice was given causing loss to the estate.

If your charity has lost out because of negligence the charity may be able to bring a claim for the loss is has suffered.

If this situation sounds familiar you should contact us immediately as strict time limits apply.

We are always happy to talk on an initial no obligation and informal basis so please email or call one of the team.
