The law imposes unique and significant responsibilities and duties upon those who serve as fiduciaries, including as personal representatives of estates and as trustees of trusts. When the beneficiaries of those estates and trusts believe those responsibilities and duties have not been performed properly, the ensuing controversy can descend into hotly contested litigation.
Our Probate, Trusts & Fiduciary Litigation Group frequently defends trustees, personal representatives and other fiduciaries in actions brought against them in connection with their administration of trusts and estates. We also have substantial experience prosecuting and defending will contests and actions to revoke trusts and amendments to trusts. Our attorneys are experienced both in the peculiarities of fiduciary law and as litigators. As such, they provide sound representation both for beneficiaries pursuing their rights against fiduciaries as well as for fiduciaries defending their performance against improper claims by beneficiaries.
