The press has recently reported on the sad case of Tracy Leaning, an animal lover who, in 2007, drafted a will benefitting the Dog’s Trust, World Animal Protection, Friends of the Animals and Heart Research UK.

Legacy income provides crucial support for these charitable objectives - objectives that Tracy clearly wanted to advance. However life changes. 

Partner Alison Regan appears in New Law Journal discussing charitable legacies and how far a charity should go to protect them.  

A matter of trust is available to read on the New Law Journal website. 

Alison advises on disputes arising out of trust or probate issues, including will and administration disputes, breach of trust issues, family property arrangements, the removal of executors or trustees and claims brought pursuant to the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975. Many matters have an international element involving domicile issues or assets based abroad.
