Browne Jacobson grows inheritance and trust dispute practice with partner hire

20 June 2023

UK & Ireland law firm Browne Jacobson has appointed disputes resolution partner Daniel Edwards to its inheritance and trust dispute practice team based in Nottingham.

An experienced litigator, Daniel specialises in all areas of contentious trusts and probate matters. Notable cases have involved :

  • Successfully applying for replacement professional personal representatives at a contested hearing.
  • Acting for an executor/beneficiary in a complex inheritance Act claim, involving a contentious life tenancy. 
  • Defending a challenge to a Will based on allegations that witnesses did not sign in the presence of the testator, and fraudulently added their signatures post-death. 
  • Defending a challenge to a life-time gift of a million pound property.
  • Acting for three defendants in a multi-party, multi-million pound Inheritance Act claim issued by the widow (and fourth wife) of the deceased.

Daniel will be joining Browne Jacobson's 12 strong Private Client team who advise clients on wealth and trust structures, landed estates, wills and estate planning, offshore trusts and structures, and contentious trust and estate work and are Tier 1 ranked in the East Midlands by both Chambers & Partners (UK) and Legal 500.

Lucy Worwood, head of the firm’s private client team, said : “Daniel’s inheritance and trust dispute experience perfectly complements the needs of our clients. We continue to see an increase in these types of disputes and so Daniel’s addition to the team couldn’t have come at a better time.”

Daniel Edwards added: “Browne Jacobson’s strong private wealth credentials and ambitious growth strategy means it’s a very exciting time to be joining the firm. I am looking forward to assisting the firm in building its inheritance and trust dispute offering further which already has a very strong reputation in the marketplace.”
