Contentious trusts and probate

The contentious trusts and probate practice is highly-regarded in the private wealth industry.

For whom do we act?

We act for trustees, beneficiaries and members of ultra high net worth families on a range of contentious matters, both in the UK and offshore, working with external litigators, counsel and overseas law firms where necessary.

Our experience

Our experience spans the spectrum of contentious work including advising trustees seeking to avoid litigation, applications for directions, applications for removal of trustees and claims for breach of trust or fiduciary duty.

Recent matters upon which we have advised include allegations of financial mismanagement, misappropriation of trust assets and breaches of trust and fiduciary duty.

"MTG stands out for its private client work, and its contentious trusts arm complements its advisory work." (Chambers UK)

Richard Turnor, consistently identified as a Leading Individual in the Contentious Trusts and Probate section of the Legal 500 is described as "a big hitter".
