"Provided very efficient service, kept us informed all the way. Explained everything. Conducted themselves in a friendly, efficient, professional manner."

A satisfied client

Experience

  • Recently dealt with two proprietary estoppel claims of note, both of which involved a farm belonging to the deceased. The claims required us to be creative in our thinking when trying to achieve a settlement, which is only possible with our agricultural sector knowledge and a proper understanding of how things work ‘on the ground’.
  • Successfully secured the removal of an executor and obtained a costs order imposing a personal costs liability against the removed executor.
  • Having advanced a case that a will had been negligently drafted by a firm of solicitors, Katie successfully negotiated a Deed of Variation with two well-known national charities so as to re-direct the entire Residuary Estate to her client.
  • Katie has recently settled a professional negligence case against a firm of solicitors which resulted in the client receiving damages from the opponent.

"Wright Hassall is small enough so that they are very personable and approachable yet large enough to have all the expertise needed"
