We know how crucial will legacies can be for our charity clients and how important it is to protect this much needed source of funding in the face of possible litigation.

We also understand that the obligations and responsibilities which charity trustees have differ from those of other parties to litigation. Our team is able to tailor its advice accordingly to take into account factors such as reputation and brand protection, risk and costs to ensure that any decision is in the charity’s best interests.

Whether your charity is faced with a will, trust or estate dispute, our legacy, will and estate disputes team can help.
