Estate Administration and Litigation
Sophisticated Legal Counsel and Representation
Our reputation as business litigation attorneys attracts a considerable amount of referrals for estate disputes and trust litigation. When a business owner, family member or business partner dies and a significant amount of wealth is involved, it is almost inevitable that some party will make a claim on assets that runs counter to other parties’ interests.
Litigation is also necessary when beneficiaries work to get an asset owner declared incompetent or unfit to manage his or her own wealth. An estate executor may be appointed, or a conservatorship in place may be necessary. Estate executors, conservators, people granted power of attorney and trustees must follow strict fiduciary duties laid out by the probate court and beneficiaries.
