PRESERVING YOUR ASSETS FOR YoUR LOVED ONES DURING YOUR LIFETIME AND BEYOND

We understand the legal and emotional intricacies for probate-related disputes. At RBN Chambers, our probate lawyers believe in working closely with our clients to resolve potential contests to ensure the rightful distribution of estate inheritance with respect and tactfulness.

HOW CAN OUR PROBATE LAWYERS HELP YOU?

Our probate lawyers represent clients in contentious and non-contentious probate matters.

INHERITANCE AND ESTATE-RELATED DISPUTES

Our probate lawyers act for clients in inheritance disputes, such as when the validity of a will is challenged, or when claims are made by third parties against the assets of the deceased. Estate administration disputes can happen when:

  • The estate administrator wilfully or carelessly causes loss or damage to estate assets
  • The beneficiaries cannot agree on the distribution of the estate
  • The validity of will is challenged
  • There have been unauthorised or unfair transfers of assets during the life of the deceased

Grant of Probate & LETTER OF ADMINISTRATION

Depending on whether the deceased has written a will, a grant of probate or letter of administration must be shown to authorise the administration of the deceased’s estate.

If required, we also offer services to reseal foreign grants of probate.

WILL WRITING

We assist our clients in their wealth succession planning by helping them to prepare their wills for the proper distribution of their estate upon their demise.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Kenny Teo

I have consulted Ramesh a few times with regard to my business disputes and I am glad he is able to explain all the various legal issues in a simple manner that I can understand. I have engaged other lawyers before and it can be frustrating if they keep telling you jargons that you have no idea about. If you need a professional lawyer to give you the best legal advice with clarity, I highly recommend you to look for Ramesh.

Jonatus Tan

Chanced upon RBN Chambers after searching in Google to look for a reliable and knowledgeable lawyer to advise me with regard to a working partnership that turns sour. Ramesh and his team were very patient to provide the different courses of action. Because of their professionalism and the assurance they gave me during the whole process, I have a peace of mind to continue with the business while leaving them to deal with the legal problems efficiently. Big Thumbs Up!
