NEIL BARNES



Neil has very broad experience of both commercial and personal legal disputes. His aim is always to achieve satisfactory solutions whether through court action, negotiation, mediation or otherwise.

Neil commenced training in 1975 and was admitted as a solicitor in 1977. Almost from the beginning of his career in 1975 he became involved in dealing with disputed estates.

He has developed this as a specialism and has now dealt with many contentious probate cases a number of which have involved estates of high value. He has also dealt with many claims for financial provision under the Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependants) Act 1975 and has acted for both claimants and defendants. His claimant clients have invariably been successful.

His claimant clients have included children of the deceased, surviving and former spouses and partners and a number of other dependants of the deceased.

Neil’s experience and reputation in this field is such that he receives a number of referrals from other firms of solicitors.
