Trust litigation

Disputes relating to family wealth, trusts and estates often involve complex and sensitive issues. Viberts’ team has the necessary experience to assist you in bringing about the most cost-effective solution no matter the problems you face in this area.

We can help you whether you are a family, settlor, trustee, beneficiary, lawyer or other intermediary, in Jersey or elsewhere. Whoever and wherever you are, we understand what is important to you. As with all our work, our clients’ affairs are treated with strictest confidence.  This is very important to us and especially in the field of contentious trusts and estates.

Our lawyers include members of the Association of Contentious Trusts and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS) and the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).  They have vast experience in both the non-contentious and contentious aspects of trust and estates matters.  This enables the firm to offer clear, valuable and effective advice on any of the following issues:

  • Breach of trust and other fiduciary duties
  • The validity of trusts and wills
  • Secondary claims, such as dishonest assistance and misrepresentation
  • Claims in relation to negligent advice
  • Inheritance disputes
  • Removing trustees and executors
  • Applications for directions
  • The rights of beneficiaries and duties of trustees
  • Incapacity
  • Problems in the transfer of trust assets
  • Errors in trustee chains
