It has been said that you don’t really know a person until you have had to share an estate with them. Sadly, this is sometimes true. Too often, family members, partners and dependents end up in disputes relating to the validity and interpretation of Wills and the management and distribution of estate assets. Very often, one or more parties feel they are being taken advantage of and that their rights, or the true wishes of the family member, partner or friend who has died, are being disregarded. Very often, without the benefit of experienced counsel, these disputes can drag on. And too often, these disputes carry with them a subtext of genuine need, betrayal, injured expectations, and hurt feelings. With knowledge and expertise built on many years of experience, Siskinds’ team of estate dispute lawyers are sensitive to the stressful nature of these disputes. We know our way around this specialized area of law, partner with and listen to our clients, and are committed to finding the most practical and cost efficient means of bringing a dispute to an end.

Clients turn to us not only for assistance in estate disputes, but also for disputes relating to estate accounting, support for dependents, breach of trust and fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment, business succession and farm disputes, and applications to remove, replace or review the actions of trustees, guardians and individuals acting under powers of attorney.

In addition to representing individuals and trust companies, many of our cases are referrals from other professionals including accountants, financial planners, insurance brokers, bankers and other lawyers who recognize the depth of our expertise in this area.

In each case, our team brings to the table a blend of sensitivity, experience, fierce advocacy and determination that lets our clients know that we hear and care about them, that we will relentlessly strive to achieve the best results for them, and that whether it be through negotiation, mediation or in the courtroom, they are being properly and fully represented.

Siskinds is by far the best law firm in London. I contacted them concerning an estate matter. John Morrissey and his assistant Reenya Koshaba, were there every step of the way. They were detail orientated and I was kept up to date throughout. Most importantly though, he effectively solved our problem. John's performance (and team) was above and beyond expectation. I couldn't have asked for more. - M.D.

I have been a client of Siskinds LLP for a few years now. Liam [Ledgerwood] and his team have been instrumental in providing me with expert legal guidance and strategic planning for my business. They’re very responsible, honest and knowledgeable people who’ll provide you with first class service. - M.K.

Really great experience through a very difficult situation. Anna [Szczurko] and her team were amazing. Very thorough, diligent and supportive every step of the way. Thank you all so very much. - S.D.
