Contentious Trust and Probate Service

We are one of the only teams in the country dedicated solely to trust and inheritance disputes. Our wealth of knowledge and experience means we provide clear, accurate advice about your situation and the likely outcome. 

Whether you are making or defending a claim, our team will ensure that the advice you receive respects your emotions and feelings at what is often a stressful time. We advise clients nationwide and can act for you in your own right, or in your position as executor or trustee.

Every case is different. It can be difficult to know where to start. We will always have an initial conversation with you, without any obligation. Please contact us to speak to one of our friendly team today or enter your details below and we will get back to you at a time that is convenient for you.

Contentious Probate Solicitors

Why Use Myerson?

If you choose to work with us, you will discover exceptionally talented lawyers who have a passion for making a genuine difference to our clients’ lives. We pride ourselves in being approachable and always ensure that everything we do is in your best interests.

All of our solicitors are either full members of ACTAPS (the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists) or are working towards that. The team is overseen and led by experienced Partner, Helen Thompson, who is a member of STEP (the global professional association for practitioners who specialise in inheritance and succession planning) and has completed the Advanced Certificate in Trust Disputes. We are also proud to be ranked in the top tier of the prestigious Legal 500 directory.

We provide practical advice and, unlike other firms, are able to deliver a complete service with support from colleagues in our Property and Private Client teams. 

From the outset, our costs will be clear and transparent, and we offer a range of funding options, including:

  • “No Win, No Fee” agreements
  • Deferred payment
  • Fixed fees
  • Litigation loans
  • Third-party funding
  • Legal expenses insurance
  • “After the event” insurance

Please contact us if you are interested in discussing these options with a member of our team.
