Today, disputes between beneficiaries and executors are becoming the norm rather than the exception.
Estate Litigation handles disputes among family members, friends and others in relation to wills and estates. Disputes over wills or the management of estates and trusts have existed for as long as the law recognized a right to make a will or set up a trust. The most common cause of a delay in closing an estate is the inability of executors to agree. Many times there are also multiple beneficiaries with conflicting interests. Emotions can run high.
Disputes between family members are common when dealing with an estate. When a dispute arises that cannot be resolved between the parties involved, there may be a need to seek legal advice to resolve the issue.
Our Estate Litigation Team has significant experience in presenting wills for proof in solemn form. We also prepare wills and have experience testifying on issues of capacity or formalities. We have appeared in most of Nova Scotia’s Courts on behalf of executors and administrators. Our Estates Litigation Team also offers a mediation-like alternative to formal court proceedings; we will assume a neutral role to mediate resolutions between parties and resolve the most contentious disputes.
