Estate Litigation

Cambridge LLP is a leader among litigation firms, and estate litigation is one area where Cambridge has exceptional expertise and experience. Beyond the unique and complex issues in this area of practice, estate litigation is known to be emotionally charged and stressful for the parties. Our lawyers know how to straddle the fine line between being supportive and being firm in advising clients so that decisions, in the end, are in the economic best interests of our clients.

The estate litigation team is led by two partners who are certified by the Law Society as “Specialists” in their practices. Such certification is granted only to a select few. Founding Partner, Adam Cappelli, is Certified as a Specialist in Estates & Trusts Law and has over 20 years of experience. Doug Elliott is certified as a Specialist in Civil Litigation and is a Law Society Medal recipient. Mr. Elliott and Mr. Cappelli bring a unique blend of expertise to each client file.

Together, they manage all client relationships and oversee any work done by other Cambridge lawyers, clerks, and staff. A team approach is what separates Cambridge LLP from many other firms. By leveraging our in-house spectrum of legal experience, Cambridge LLP is able to be more responsive and efficient with the delivery of its legal services. Whether you are carrying out your responsibilities as an executor and trustee, disputing the validity of a Will or asserting your rights as a beneficiary under an estate, Cambridge LLP has the legal expertise and resources to help you.
