Illinois Trust Dispute Attorneys
Trust litigation is a type of estate litigation involving disputes over the intentions and administration of a trust. Even a trust created by a skilled trusts and estates lawyer can be challenged. When this happens, it is important to consult a lawyer with knowledge and experience handling this type of litigation.
At the Barrington law firm of Kelleher & Buckley, LLC, our attorneys undertake trust litigation for our clients. Because litigation can be expensive, our goal is always to resolve the matter as quickly and effectively as possible to preserve the assets of the trust. We represent individual and corporate fiduciaries, beneficiaries and others with interest in a trust.
Issues in Trust Litigation
Our litigation attorneys handle a range of matters, including those arising from disputes over:
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Asset management
- Sale and purchase of assets
- Taxation issues
- Delayed distributions of trust funds
- Missing assets
- Enforcing trust limitations
- Trust reformation
Our firm represents both plaintiffs and defendants. For example, in one case, we might defend against a breach of fiduciary duty claim in a trustee dispute. In another, we might bring suit against a trustee on behalf of beneficiaries seeking to force a trustee to release accounting records. Trust litigation can take many forms, and our lawyers have the knowledge and skill to handle any trust litigation, however complex.
We not only practice in this area of the law, but we teach it as well, speaking and lecturing at continuing legal education seminars and other venues. This allows us to maintain a high level of knowledge about changes in the trust litigation field that could affect our clients.
