Claims against executors and administrators
Executors and fiduciaries may be subject to a range of legal proceedings. This can happen if a beneficiary of an estate believes that they have failed to execute their duties correctly. Or a beneficiary or third party such as a creditor may sue administrators seeking to be paid from assets of the estate.Whatever the nature of the dispute, we can help. Our clients include successful individuals and families, executors, trustees and charities in the UK, the US and throughout the offshore jurisdictions.
Although we can bring considerable firepower to bear in court, we always take a commercial view and look to resolve disputes through alternative routes.
Too frequently, our team sees fiduciaries take advantage of their position, which if not caught early, can result in substantial damages that are difficult to recover. Establishing a strategy early on is key and we will review fiduciaries’ actions and accountings to save substantial money and ensure the wishes of your loved ones are carried out.
