To include a spotlight on the recent Supreme Court decision on illegality as well as a full update on trusts and probate.
The Contentious Trusts
and Estates Special Interest Group is focusing on challenges to wills
and trusts, with special attention to recent decisions involving
illegality and the standing to bring will claims in estate litigation.
Recent years have seen a steady rise in probate claims and an increasing
willingness to challenge established structures. There are a battery of
rules which a challenger can invoke, not all of them well known. We
shall review the whole field to include the law of mistake restated in Pitt v Holt, settlements as shams under the insolvency legislation, and the recent decision in Patel v Mirza.
The numerous ways in
which a will or a trust can fail altogether, leaving family and
fiduciaries unhappy – or perhaps happy – show the pitfalls for planners
and the opportunities for litigators.
