What contentious probate means for the non-contentious practitioner

Thursday 17th May, 2pm - 5pm

Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, London, WC1A 2LP


Roman Kubiak, Partner, Hugh James

Professional PR toolkit - What to do when faced with a dispute

Roman will discuss the potential pitfalls for professional personal representatives and trustees when faced with a dispute and provide tried and tested examples of how to navigate through the minefield.

“The ‘very commercial and hardworking’ Roman Kubiak has a strong reputation for cross-jurisdictional trust and estates disputes.” – Legal 500 2017

Josh Lewison, Radcliffe Chambers

Construing wills

Drafting a will is one thing, but understanding it is another. What approach does the court take to the construction of wills and what are the implications of the Human Rights Act in the light of Hand v George?

"He's lovely to work with. His advice is clear, and when you ask for something you know you'll get it on time." Chambers UK 2016

Kate Selway, Radcliffe Chambers

Fraud and undue influence: a recent case

Kate considers the recent decision of Christodoulides-v-Marcou and the test which the court will apply when considering fraudulent calumny in will-making.

“Very bright, punchy, and doesn’t sit on the fence. She is a delight to work with.” Chambers UK

Thomas Dumont, Radcliffe Chambers

The solicitor as the Target

Contentious probate is not just about the Will. The firm who drafted it, or which acted post-death, can quickly become the target of legal claims itself. What are those claims, and how can they be avoided, minimised or managed?

“Thomas Dumont continues to enthral both clients and opponents with his strong courtroom presence and highly skilled, hugely effective cross-examining technique.” Chambers UK
