Estate litigation is complex. When individuals secure estate planning advice from legal counsel, they often take specific steps to ensure asset preservation. While these legal structures can be effective from a planning standpoint, they can also create disputes between beneficiaries. Additionally, beneficiaries have many rights to be their own advocates to advance their position on how estate assets should be managed, distributed and accounted for.
At Walsh LLP in Calgary and Okotoks, we have extensive experience with complicated estate litigation. Among the varieties of rights and remedies issues we handle for clients are:
- Beneficiaries' rights and expectations
- Entitlement to estate property (accounting)
- Property inside and outside of estate
- Challenges to gifts
- Challenges to personal representatives (executors) and estate administrators
If you are a beneficiary to an estate or trust, you may want straightforward advice about what you are entitled to and what actions you can take — from issues of estate asset distribution to the removal of a personal representative (executor) or trustee. At Walsh LLP, we offer both advice and advocacy. We will keep you informed about your legal position and work diligently to advance your interests inside and outside the courtroom.
