Estates Practice

In non-contentious estates proceedings, SLP had been retained by local clients as well as law firms from Australia, Brunei, Fiji, Japan, Malaysia, the United Kingdom, the Public Trust of New Zealand, in non-contentious proceedings involving applications for probate, letters of administration or re-sealing of foreign grants in circumstances where the deceased’s assets are registered in Singapore.

SLP’s engagement in contentious estate proceedings has involved proceedings in the High Court to recover from executors, assets which had not been transferred to beneficiaries, seeking accounts from executors, seeking remedies for breach of duties against executors etc.
