The first edition of Probate Disputes and Remedies was published in 1997 and the second edition in 2008. The preface to the first edition described probate disputes as a growing phenomenon. That growth has continued as is witnessed by the growth of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists, established shortly after publication of the first edition. Little said in the preface to the first edition does not ring as true 17 years later. The emphasis in the Civil Procedure Rules on resolving disputes by alternative routes to a full trial means that the vast majority of probate disputes are resolved in one way or another without seeing court. The Jackson reforms, particularly those concerning costs, are likely to reinforce that trend – although they bring with them fresh difficulties for practitioners. Read the full preface...
