Contesting Wills is a specialist legal service provided by Slee Blackwell Solicitors LLP.

We are an award winning firm of solicitors and have been recommended in the field of Contentious Trusts and Probate by the independent guide to the legal profession, the Legal 500.

This is what the 2017 edition had to say about us:

“Slee Blackwell’s team mainly acts for individuals on disputes concerning the validity of wills, claims under the Inheritance Act and disputes involving beneficiaries and executors, with 2016 seeing the group acting in a number of mediated settlements. Newly promoted partner Naomi Ireson is ‘knowledgeable, experienced and thorough’, also noted for her ‘exemplary’ attention to detail. Her areas of expertise also include beneficial interest claims involving estoppel and constructive trusts. Lee Dawkins, who has notable experience in handling inheritance disputes and professional negligence claims, is a further name to note.”

We are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and have been awarded Lexcel accreditation by the Law Society for excellence in client care.

We have a team of lawyers who specialise solely in contested will claims. They are genuine experts in this highly complex area of law and are highly experienced in all aspects of contentious probate.

We are very proud of our track record of success in contesting wills. Our ability to obtain excellent results enables us to offer no win, no fee funding where other solicitors are wary to do so.

We operate a very popular case assessment service. We will provide you with an initial assessment of your contested wills case completely free of charge and let you know what funding options are likely to be available.
