In the midst of the largest generational transfer of wealth in the nation's history, high stakes disagreements frequently arise concerning the validity and meaning of trust instruments and wills, the appropriate management and distribution of the assets which pass under them, and the conduct of the fiduciaries responsible for managing and distributing those assets. These disputes include:
Trust and will contests;
Fiduciary removal proceedings;
Trust reformation and interpretation actions;
Breach of fiduciary duty, mismanagement, and embezzlement claims; and
Complex accounting actions
The members of the Firm's Trust, Fiduciary & Probate Litigation group have extensive experience in the specialized body of law governing this practice area, with the informal resolution of these often highly contentious matters, and in the courts in which these disputes are most frequently litigated.
