Estates & Trusts Litigation

OVERVIEW

The stakes are often high, with immense wealth and emotional issues taking center stage. These disputes often involve entanglements with family owned partnerships or corporations. 

Our estates and trusts litigation group has substantial experience representing fiduciaries, heirs and other related parties in these disputes. These cases often involve claims that the decedent was incapacitated or subject to undue influence at the time of the will execution. They also involve allegations of improper conduct against fiduciaries in connection with their administration of an estate or trust.  Some of these cases have become hard fought court battles, while others have been sensibly resolved through mediation or settlement negotiation in a cost effective manner.  In either situation, we understand the issues, develop effective strategies and have a proven track record of achieving desirable results.
