Inheritance law – litigation

The lawyer

The lawyer assists one party. This means he or she is partial and represents the interests of one of the legatees. He or she may do this in court proceedings, but also as an advisor to a party attempting to discuss matters with the other parties in order to reach agreement. The lawyer may even just give background advice, if the party is involved in mediation.

Going to court over an estate

SmeetsGijbels lawyers will always do all that is possible to achieve a satisfactory settlement of the estate in consultation with all the legatees. If discussions between the legatees are not possible, our lawyers can assist you with the legal proceedings. We will represent your interests in the proceedings with the aim of securing a favourable ruling from the court.

Care to know more?

Family and inheritance law are sensitive subjects that often involve strong emotions. Matters that once seemed routine can take on a new significance as a result of all kinds of events, causing a breakdown in communications and thrusting the parties involved into far-reaching and invasive legal proceedings. SmeetsGijbels advises its clients on what route to take. We do so with empathy and support, adding our specialist legal knowledge as necessary.
