Trusts, Probate & Estates

XXIV Old Buildings is recognised by the legal directories as one of the top chambers dealing with trust, probate and estate matters.    Our experience covers a broad range of contentious, and some non-contentious, trust litigation including:

  • Claims against trustees for breach of trust
  • Hostile trust litigation by trustees against third parties and/or beneficiaries
  • Trustees’ directions hearings including Beddoe applications
  • Contentious probate and will disputes
  • Issues arising out of questionable testamentary capacity
  • Inheritance Act claims
  • Constructive trusts claims
  • Court of Protection claims

In addition XXIV Old Buildings holds an annual international trust litigation conference in Geneva and has recently taken over editorship of Jordan’s “International Trust Laws”.  David Brownbill QC and Andrew Holden have also produced “Trusts Protectors” (Jordans).
