Thomas Dumont

| Call 1979

Profile: Wills and Estates

Experience and Expertise

Tom is one of the leading practitioners in this area. He consistently appears in major contentious probate and Inheritance Act 1975 cases. In 1975 Act claims, he is currently acting in a high-profile claim by a co-habitee in an estate worth tens of millions. He represents a widow in a claim also against an 8-figure estate. In Will cases, he has successfully overturned wills on the grounds of forgery Supple v Pender [2007], lack of capacity Re Anker-Petersen [2010] and Re Harris [2012] and want of knowledge and approval Re Harris [2012].

He also much sought-after for his advice on the interpretation of wills, and the administration of estates.
