You might have heard or seen media reports in relation to all the commotion surrounding the estate of the late Michael Wright, a billionaire mining tycoon from West Australia and the very public estate dispute that emerged between the executor of the estate and estranged daughter, Olivia Mead who successfully won a massive claim in the West Australia Supreme Court earlier this year, that now is under appeal.
Now, of course not all estate disputes are as spectacular as what we’ve seen in this case, but increasingly people are challenging estates in those circumstances where they believe they should be entitled to more and they happen in QLD and NSW, under the guise of what’s commonly referred to as a Family Provision Claim.
In this podcast, Estate Litigation Lawyer, Lucy McPherson of Attwood Marshall lawyers discusses the options for those seeking equity by way of challenging an estate.
