Insurance Claims, Contentious Estates and Will Disputes

A member of our dispute resolution team, Eleanor provides effective support to clients in respect of commercial disputes.

Eleanor has specialist experience in:

  • Insurance claim work
  • Contentious estates and will disputes
  • Contentious insolvency and related director’s disqualification proceedings and claims related to civil fraud

Whether managing specific individual matters on her own account or as part of a team on more complex contentious matters, often working closely with Robert Whitehead (joint head of our dispute resolution team), Eleanor is highly valued for her practical and thorough approach.

Eleanor undertakes work for several national insurers and Lloyd’s syndicates, managing claims on their behalf to effective and sensible conclusions, including where necessary bringing and defending proceedings before the County and High Courts.

Issues arising in respect of disputed wills and estates require a tactful and tenacious approach. Eleanor is able to bring these qualities to bear, alongside a thorough technical understanding of this complex area of law on behalf of those bringing a claim against an estate or who wish to dispute a will. She has particular experience of making claims to remove or substitute executors where there is evidence of maladministration of the estate. Eleanor is also able to advise both lay and professional executors as to claims made against the estate or them personally.

Eleanor’s recent work includes matters for Great Lakes Reinsurance (UK) PLC, Hardy (Underwriting Agencies) Ltd and Willerby Holiday Homes Ltd.
