Our lawyers at Gourlay Spencer Wade LLP are frequently retained to act for trustees, executors, beneficiaries and claimants in will and trust disputes and other estate litigation matters. We also assist clients with the appointment of committees for the guardianship of adults who are incapable by reason of mental or physical infirmity. Examples of our estate litigation work include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Pursuing the redistribution of gifts made pursuant to the deceased's will
  • Advancing claims for equitable relief where the deceased has not left a will
  • Pursuing the remedies available under the Wills Variation Act
  • Crafting resolutions to problems created by unequal gifting amongst family members
  • Bringing proceedings to interpret a trust agreement or will
  • Seeking a determination of the capacity of the testator to make a will
  • Pursuing claims of undue influence and coercion with respect to a will

Our firm has an extensive record of success helping trustees resist claims by disappointed beneficiaries, protecting the interests of claimants who have been disinherited and guiding clients through the adult guardianship process.
