How we can help

Contentious Probate

The Pannone Corporate team of contentious probate solicitors in Manchester deal with the administration of complex estates, often involving family businesses and trusts. We advise executors, trustees and beneficiaries on their rights and duties and often act as trusted advisers to families with longstanding trusts.

Our contentious probate solicitors in Manchester have the knowledge and expertise to guide you through all issues that may occur as a result of a person’s death.

We also advise trustees holding shares in family businesses where a shareholder has died. This can involve guiding executors and/or remaining shareholders through the process of change in the ownership of a business resulting in an ultimate sale.

Our Recent Contested Probate Cases Include:

  • Advising in relation to a dispute between two co-executors both appointed in relation to their mother’s estate, resolving dispute cost-effectively;
  • Drafting a deed of variation to reorganise the estate of a person who died with a non-tax efficient will exposing the estate to excessive tax and an Inheritance Act claim by the surviving spouse;
  • Winding up the estate of a high net-worth individual with assets in several jurisdictions and an ongoing business in the UK.
