In addition to family provision claims and questions about capacity, disputes sometimes arise in deceased estates when family members believe that particular individuals exerted undue influence on the way in which a will was made.

Teece Hodgson & Ward specialists expertly advise in these matters.

“Undue influence” cases are very difficult to prove in court. For this reason, it is important that anyone considering making such a claim obtains authoritative advice from lawyers who are both truly experts in and fully familiar with this area of law.

Equally, executors faced with such a claim need to understand their duties to beneficiaries named in the will and need dependable advice and strong representation when responding to claims of undue influence.
