Administration disputes


A dispute may arise in the administration of a deceased person’s estate. An estate is administered by an executor or administrator (these may both be referred to as personal representatives).

Administration disputes may relate to:

  • Whether the personal representative of the estate is appropriate to act
  • Which assets should be in the estate
  • Whether the personal representative of the estate has caused a loss to the estate (perhaps by selling assets under their real value)
  • How the estate assets should be distributed between beneficiaries
  • The correct valuation of the estate assets

We act for executors, administrators, trustees and beneficiaries to help them resolve such disputes in a pragmatic and cost effective manner.
