In 2009, Jan Atkinson was appointed a member of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS) and is now a Registered Contentious Trust and Probate Specialist. She has been a member of STEP, the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, for some years and therefore now has formal accreditation in the areas of contentious trusts and probate as well as non contentious trust and estate work.
Contentious trusts and probate work relates to disputes as to the validity of wills and the interpretation of the wills themselves.
ACTAPS aim is to provide a forum for specialists to exchange experience, know-how and an appreciation of the law and statutes in this specialist area and, where possible, to enable representations to be made to the appropriate governmental and judicial bodies in relation to contentious trust and probate issues.
