Interesting new Contentious Probate role for an experienced Solicitor c2 year pqe+. You will be joining leading Top 100 firm, with a strong name for Private client and a commitment to build on recent successes and build up the contentious probate team. You will be joining a small well established and cohesive team, dealing with a broad range of clients from HNWI to charitable institutions. You will either have a background in private client looking to move across to contentious probate, or a litigator with contentious probate experience, if you are not already a contentious probate specialist.

You will be advising on a myriad of matters including : claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependants) Act; Claims challenging the validity of a will, based on capacity or undue influence; Contentious Estate Administration, including disagreements between beneficiaries or issues with Executors in the performance of their duties; Claims arising from breach of Trustee/Executor duties; Professional negligence claims arising from the drafting or wills or poor estate administration; Advising charities about claims that affect their legacy income and TOLATA claims in context of estate administration.

If you are bright, ambitious, enjoy working in a team and happy to get "stuck in" from day one, get involved in business development and are keen to progress your carer, our client would like to hear from you.
