Coodes takes the lead in advising on inheritance disputes

Mon 23rd Jan 2017

Colin Hunter, Partner and Head of the Personal Disputes team at Coodes Solicitors, has become a member of the Association of Contentious Trusts and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS). Colin is now one of a select number of UK lawyers in that organisation.

ACTAPS is the leading body for legal professionals in the field of disputed wills, inheritance and probate. Coodes Solicitors now has the highest number of lawyers in Cornwall with ACTAPS memberships, demonstrating the firm’s ability to provide expert legal advice on complex disputed wills and inheritance claims.

Coodes is advising growing numbers of people who want to challenge the validity of a Will or the outcome of an inheritance.

Colin Hunter said: “A number of years ago, we identified the need for more specialist knowledge within the South West for people seeking help to resolve inheritance disputes. Since then we have focused on growing our team and enhancing our skills and knowledge to meet that need. We now pride ourselves on our ability to offer the knowledge, expertise and experience to confidently handle these complicated cases for our clients. We are also committed to a caring and supportive approach to such cases in what we know and understand can be a very sad and difficult time involving the loss of possibly a close family member.

“We have an ageing population, family structures are becoming more complex, and as a result, more people are seeking advice on the validity or fairness of wills and their inheritance. By continuing to grow and develop our team, we are now well placed to continue to help people who find themselves in this unfortunate position.”
