Andrew has extensive experience in resolving hostile disputes since he qualified as a solicitor with Russell-Cooke in 2016.
He specialises in dealing with succession, probate and trust disputes.
Andrew regularly advises in relation to Inheritance Act 1975 claims, domicile disputes, will challenges, removal applications, property trust disputes and trust, estate and administration issues.
I worked closely with Andrew Morgan, a senior associate on one matter. I found him to be knowledgeable and with a good eye for detail. He was very on top of the case and worked closely with Counsel to achieve the desired outcome for the client.
