It may be a disagreement over the way the family trust is being run, challenging the validity of a will or defending an attack on a trustee. We have significant experience in dealing with disputes involving multi-jurisdictional estates and individuals with multiple international connections. Whatever the nature of the dispute, we can help to resolve it in the most sensitive and efficient way, whether through negotiation, mediation or hard-fought litigation.
We can also advise on asset protection and risk management strategies in conjunction with the larger Family Office team in the context of wealth management and succession planning. This may take the form of stress testing succession plans or trusts.
