Emily Mailer is recognised as a leading specialist in trusts and estates disputes, resolving both domestic and international cases.
Emily acts for individuals, families, executors, trustees, trust companies, and beneficiaries.
Her wealth of experience includes conducting cases concerning the validity of wills, claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, breach of trust claims, construction proceedings and rectification applications, and applications to remove executors and trustees.
Emily also handles Court of Protection applications (both contested and uncontested) for the appointment of deputies and the approval of statutory wills or lifetime gifts.
Along with the Trusts and Estates Disputes practice, Emily provides robust representation of clients in court but equally helps clients reach a settlement away from the risk and publicity of litigation where possible. She is experienced in various forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution, such as mediation.
Emily also advises settlors who are establishing trusts on risk management issues, such as the treatment of a trust's assets on the divorce or bankruptcy of a beneficiary.
She is a regular speaker at conferences and seminars, for example, The International Trusts and Private Client Forum in Jersey, Cross Border Planning for the Private Client in London and STEP Guernsey.
Emily is a member of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS).
