Contesting a Will on a no win, no fee basis in Dorset

While we provide a national service throughout the whole of England and Wales, we are located in the southwest and are therefore well placed to assist you with contesting a Will in Dorset.

Our team of 8 fully qualified lawyers specialising in contesting Wills are based in the west country. They practice exclusively in this highly specialised field of law and are therefore leading experts.

If you are based in Dorset, (including, Bournemouth, Poole, Lyme Regis, Weymouth, Christchurch, Dorchester, Wimborne, Shaftesbury and Bridport) then we are ready to help you obtain the justice you deserve.

Our expertise in contesting Wills has been recognised by the independent legal directory, The Legal 500. This leading publication has included us as a recommended firm for contentious probate in the southwest region. Its 2024 edition had this to say about our contentious probate team:

“The strengths of the team is their ability to be thoroughly knowledgeable, stand for no nonsense, and do their absolute best for their client.”

The Legal 500 highlighted the work of partners Naomi Ireson and Hayley Bundey. Naomi, who heads up our team, is referred to in the guide as being, ‘simply perfect’, and standing out as ‘efficient and helpful’, while Hayley is described as ‘excellent‘, and a ‘prolific adviser on contentious probate work‘.

We offer our clients a range of funding options. This includes our popular No Win, No Fee scheme, and we will be happy to consider the suitability of any contested Will case for No Win, No Fee funding.

Our lawyers are highly experienced in all aspects of contesting a Will and have a first rate track record of success. You can read HERE a selection of our success stories.

We deal with cases involving challenges to the validity of a Will based on allegations of:

  • Undue influence
  • Lack of testamentary capacity
  • Want of knowledge and approval, and
  • Fraud.

In addition to contesting Wills on the basis of invalidity, we are also vastly experienced in bringing inheritance dispute claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975. Inheritance Act claims can be made against the estate of a deceased person by various individuals, including spouses, children, unmarried partners and anyone who was financially dependent upon the deceased.

Again, we can deal with Inheritance Act claims on a no win, no fee basis, and will be happy to consider the suitability of any case free of charge.
