AFR Advocates

Trust Disputes / Litigation

AFR has extensive experience of advising and acting in complex, often multi-jurisdictional, trust disputes.  Although most disputes will involve private trusts, we have been appointed to act on behalf of clients dealing with disputes involving commercial trusts established for investment.

Whether they concern claims by beneficiaries to obtain disclosure of trust documents, to secure the replacement of trustees or to obtain compensation from the trustees for breach of trust or advising trustees in relation to defending claims from beneficiaries, AFR has the experience necessary to ensure claims are approached in the best way from the outset to achieve our clients' aims.

Contentious probate work, in particular, can be very stressful for clients who may be struggling to deal with bereavement issues at the same time as making decisions on legal issues.  We understand those concerns and always aim to give the clearest advice possible and to consider whether our clients can settle without the need for litigation.
