SUCCESSION PLANNING AND ESTATE LITIGATION
Getting your succession plan right should be at the top of the family priority list. Leaving a good legacy for the next generation really does make a huge difference. We often see the results of succession planning gone wrong where the parties end up in an expensive and often destructive litigation process. Having said that often there are genuine causes for complaint and once again, it is important to get advice early.
There are legal factors that need to be taken into account when you are seeking compensation such as pre-existing injuries, extenuating circumstances or contributory negligence from another party.
If you think that you have a claim it is vital that you obtain a clear understanding of your legal position before you start. Remember if you are unsure as to your legal rights do not sign anything until you have had legal advice.
