Wills, Estates and Trust Litigation

We have broad experience representing clients in disputes pertaining to Wills, Estates and various kinds of trusts. Our areas of expertise in Wills and Estates include the following:

  • Court actions to interpret Will provisions, both for trustees and beneficiaries
  • Will validity challenges before the Courts, whether seeking to have a Will set aside entirely on the ground of testamentary incapacity or as a result of undue influence exercised against the deceased
  • Changes to a Will’s terms under the Wills Variation Act of British Columbia
  • Revocation of Will probate on the basis, for example, that a particular legal heir had not been notified of the probate process

We also have expertise in various types of trust-related cases, including those involving the question whether a trust exists, the proper interpretation of a trust deed or whether a breach of trust has occurred.

Our firm also has considerable expertise in cases where a party is asking the Court to impose a constructive trust, as is in situations where there has been an unjust enrichment of one party by another, and fairness requires judicial intervention.
