Using ADR in Succession Disputes - Unravelling the Difficult Issues
The costs (both legal and emotional) incurred in taking succession disputes to full trial are enormous.
The Civil Procedure Rules and Chancery Guide expect those involved to undertake ADR. Indeed, the court will impose cost sanctions, on any party, if ADR has not been undertaken.
This webinar will address the difficult technical issues involved in probate and Inheritance Act mediations and the enforcement of the same.
You will gain valuable practical guidance on how to secure information and prepare for such mediations. The Chancery and Family Divisions have also developed the process of early neutral evaluation and financial dispute resolution. We will examine the workings of these court-based ADR methods.
