Estate Litigation

Sad as it is, when family friction sometimes erupts upon the death of a loved one, the hard reality is that effective representation is essential, to ensure that family members are not excluded from their rightful entitlement.

Canada, as a land of immigrants, has many cases in which family, overseas, have wills and estates that are disputed in a number of jurisdictions. This is something that we do a lot of, in the context of our multi-jurisdictional training.

Whether it is simply to challenge a Will or to dispute the administration of an estate, in Ontario or further afield, we are pleased to help. The firm has appeared in many important estate litigation cases, one of which, Middel v Vandentop, forms the subject of an article in the Journal of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP Journal) and is summarized on our website as follows Involuntary support.
