BHW Solicitors are pleased to announce that Paul Davis, a solicitor in the firm’s Dispute Resolution department, has been appointed as an Associate Member of The Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS) and becomes one of only a handful of ACTAPS Members in the East Midlands.

Only solicitors and barristers who have specialist expertise in disputed wills, Inheritance Act claims, estate administration and contested probates are admitted to ACTAPS. Additionally all ACTAPS Associate Members must undergo 2 years of specialised training. The prestigious association allows solicitors who specialise in contentious trust and probate work to liaise and share their experience and knowledge.

ACTAPS provides a code of conduct which all members must comply with. The code is designed to ensure that contentious probate matters are dealt with in a manner which attempts to avoid protracted litigation.

Speaking of his appointment, Paul said: “I am immensely proud to be appointed as an Associate Member of ACTAPS, which is widely recognised as the blue-ribbon standard for lawyers specialising in contentious trust and probate work. As an Associate Member of ACTAPS, our clients can be assured of my expertise in this complicated area of law”.

BHW Solicitors’ Managing Partner, Nick Bridle, also commented: “Paul’s hard work over the last two years in gaining membership of ACTAPS is an excellent accomplishment for both him and our firm and recognises the specialist service we provide.”
