Meet our expert lawyers who are dedicated in making life better for our clients.
I deal with a wide range of complex contentious wills and trust disputes, including validity disputes involving lack of testamentary capacity, undue influence, want of knowledge and approval and fraud. I have many years’ experience both in High Court litigation and mediation.
I further advise and assist clients on claims for financial provision under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, as well as claims arising on intestacy (the absence of a valid will).
I act on applications for the removal and/or replacement of executors and trustees, maladministration claims, and other disagreements arising during the administration of an estate or the life of a trust.
I also deal with contentious Court of Protection applications (e.g. contested statutory wills or disputed Enduring Powers of Attorney and Deputyships).
I act for a variety of clients including spouses, partners and relatives of individuals who have died, minor beneficiaries, as well as executors, trustees and charities, in relation to disputed legacies and will contests.
I am a trustee of two charitable trusts, am involved as a volunteer in other charitable work in my local community and church, and enjoy Fell walking in the Lake District and spending time with my family.

Scott Taylor and Lisa Green are experienced litigators who fight their client’s corner, but without unnecessary aggression towards their opponent. They are knowledgeable and approachable.
Lisa tackles a wide range of disputes, including will contests and Inheritance Act 1975 claims. She also advises clients on contentious Court of Protection matters. Green “has an instinctive insight for the right way forward on a case,” according to one source, and another interviewee says: “I have experienced first-hand her talent for litigation. She has very good judgement and is a savvy negotiator.”
