Ober|Kaler has considerable experience helping clients address controversies that arise in administering estates and trusts and in probating wills. Our Estates and Trusts Group attorneys and litigators provide counsel and representation to personal representatives, individual and corporate trustees, individual beneficiaries and families concerning the proper interpretation of wills and trust instruments, reformation of trusts, challenges to the validity of wills and trust instruments, and challenges to the administration of decedents' estates and trusts.
We approach fiduciary litigation by assembling a multidisciplinary team that brings the right mix of skills to each case. The team will typically include a trial attorney experienced in litigating estate and trust controversies, and an attorney from our Estates and Trusts Group who is experienced in estate and trust planning, drafting and administration. This approach enables us to provide our clients the combined benefits that come with having skilled trial advocates working hand-in-hand with knowledgeable attorneys who regularly counsel clients with respect to estate planning strategies, documentation and estate and trust administration.
