Meet The Team

Bell and Buxton Solicitors is home to a renowned team of solicitors with expertise in representing clients to resolve Will, estate and trust disputes.

Over many years they have developed a regional and national reputation for their specialist knowledge in this niche, and often complex area of law.

They are known for their “No-nonsense, get-it-sorted approach, which is refreshing and effective.” Legal 500, 2017.

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.
