Estate Probate & Disputes

In the coming years, over $750B will be passed from one generation to the next in Canada. With so much at stake, it is inevitable that dispute will arise between family members. The lawyers at SVR have experience advising on all sides of these disputes, including representing charities that have been named as a beneficiary in a will.

Our experience includes advising on: 

  • If a will is valid

  • Defending challenges to a will

  • Mental capacity assessments

  • Applications to remove a trustee

If you are involved in an estate dispute, please contact a member of our estate litigation team to discuss your matter.
