Funding of Wills and Probate disputes
News article published on: 18th June 2014
Wills and Probate disputes can be very expensive and clients often find it difficult to find the money to cover their legal costs.
Frequently in these sorts of case the client is entitled to money from an estate but cannot get access to those monies without taking action via the court. Litigation loan companies are now offering a solution to this problem by providing a loan to clients as a facility to cover the costs of taking their case forward. Each case has to be assessed on its merits and the loan can be used by either a claimant or a defendant.
