Trust, Estate & Fiduciary Litigation

For Husch Blackwell, it's a matter of trust.

Our Trust, Estate & Fiduciary Litigation team combines deep legal knowledge with decades of litigation experience to resolve high-stakes trust, estate and fiduciary duty matters through mediation, arbitration or trial.

Husch Blackwell counsels T&E and fiduciary clients on best practices for administering trusts and estates to minimize risk, avoid litigation and effectively settle disputes without court intervention.

  • Beneficiaries’ rights

  • Breach of fiduciary duty claims
  • Construction and reformation of estate planning documents
  • Creditors’ rights
  • Identification and recovery of trust and estate assets
