Probate and Administration in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Sheikh v Law Society
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 23 Noviembre 2006

    In addressing that question – described by Mr Justice Neuberger as the "second question" – the court must, indeed, weigh the risks of re-instating the solicitor in his (or her) practice against the potentially catastrophic consequences to the solicitor (and the inconvenience, and perhaps real harm, to his or her existing clients) if the intervention continues.

  • Jemma Trust Company Ltd v Liptrott and Others
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 24 Octubre 2003

    We have already made clear our view that the Judge has assessed too low an hourly rate, if he was right to conclude that a valuation element should not appear separately in the bills. If the value element is addressed separately, the Law Society guidance contemplates an uplift factor of 25 – 33% over the expense rate. By adopting KBL's skeleton argument, the Judge gave KBL that rate but no more, at any rate for the years 1994 – 1996.

  • Re Erskine 1948 Trust
    • Chancery Division
    • 29 Marzo 2012

    It seems to me clear that, if the present application had been before the court before 2 October 1998, the court would have been obliged to have regard only to national law when construing provisions in the settlement. But now that the Convention has become part of English law paragraph 62 suggests that other considerations are relevant and might even prevail at the stage when the disposition is being construed.
