Senior Partner | Head of Contentious Probate and Trusts
Bell and Buxton Solicitors is home to a renowned team of solicitors with expertise in representing clients to resolve Will, estate and trust disputes. We are recognised by The legal 500  as one of the leading law firms in Yorkshire for our expertise in contentious trusts and probate.
Over many years we have developed an outstanding reputation for specialist knowledge in this niche, and often complex area of law. Our 'knowledgeable and experienced team' are known for their 'No-nonsense, get-it-sorted approach, which is refreshing and effective' Legal 500 [2019/2017]. The team is led by the 'experienced and talented' Mary Butler who 'combines technical knowledge with a real streetwise, practical sense of how to crack a difficult case'.
Cases involving Will, Estate and Trust disputes can be emotionally charged, with significant assets or the personal interests of loved ones at stake. They can also be lengthy and costly, therefore it’s vital that expert legal advice is obtained before taking action.
We take the time to understand your concerns and the outcome you hope to achieve. Our approach is to always try and resolve disputes through negotiations. However, when this isn’t possible, we have significant experience and a track record of success in cases involving court proceedings.
