Nicola BushbyPartner at Irwin Mitchell
I am a Partner in the Will, Trust and Estate Disputes team in London. I specialise in trust and estate litigation for high and ultra-high net worth individuals and families, often involving complex capacity issues.
I have particular expertise in claims for breach of trust, inter-family disputes in relation to the administration of estates and constructive trusts, Will disputes and setting aside transactions by reason of mental incapacity and undue influence. My cases regularly involve multiple jurisdictions and recovering money held offshore.
I have enormous strength across the whole spectrum of Court of Protection work, with particular emphasis on contentious financial applications concerning the estates and businesses of those who may have lost capacity to manage them, financial abuse, gift and statutory Will disputes and the removal of attorneys and deputies.
I am particularly skilful and experienced at dealing with the dynamics of family disputes and am adept at untangling the most difficult and challenging of cases.
