UK Inheritance disputes involving Canadian or US residents

Using ‘virtual mediation’ to resolve UK Inheritance disputes involving Canadian or US residents.

We employ ‘virtual mediation’ to assist Canadian and US residents to resolve Inheritance disputes involving estates in England and Wales. By utilising ‘virtual mediation’ we are able to resolve contentious probate cases conveniently, quickly, and cost-effectively.

Inheritance disputes and contested Wills are our specialist areas and our team of expert lawyers is here to bridge the geographical gap between those across the atlantic and their affairs back here in the UK.

We have nine fully qualified lawyers who work exclusively in this niche area of law, making them one of the largest and most experienced inheritance dispute teams in the country. Our expertise has been recognised by the independent guide to the legal sector in the UK, the Legal 500, which had this to say about us in its 2024 edition:

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

It also described team leader Naomi Ireson as, ‘simply perfect’.

We are familiar with the particular challenges of handling disputes where a party resides in a different part of the globe, and will do everything we can to ensure that the geographical distance does not prejudice their legal position.

We always strive to find solutions to problems, and are proud of our track record of success in resolving disputes on favourable terms for our clients.

Mediation is a particularly effective way of resolving disputes where one or more parties are located overseas. Since the pandemic we have pioneered the use of ‘virtual mediation’ so it is no longer necessary for all the parties to a dispute to travel and attend a mediation in person. Because the whole process can now take place online, it is an ideal solution for those located in Canada or the USA who do not wish to travel back to the UK to sort out a legal dispute. The time difference can sometimes present a challenge, but we are happy to try to work around this, and in any case, the lower costs and speed of ‘virtual mediation’ more than make up for any inconvenience.

We offer a range of funding options to those living in Canada and the USA, and we are often able to work on a No Win, No Fee basis.
