Trusts & Estates and Fiduciary Litigation

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

Our 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 clients on best practices for administering trusts and estates to minimize risk, avoid litigation and effectively settle disputes without court intervention. But when litigation is unavoidable, our attorneys are zealous advocates for the banks, trust companies, trustees, executors, personal representatives, beneficiaries, heirs, creditors and tax-exempt organizations that we represent.

Our guidance to clients in the sector of trusts, estates and fiduciary litigation includes:

  • Beneficiaries’ rights
  • Best practices
  • Breach of fiduciary duty claims
  • Construction and reformation of estate planning documents
  • Creditors’ rights
  • Identification and recovery of trust and estate assets
  • Income, estate, gift and generation-skipping tax issues
  • Marital property rights
  • Will and trust contests
