A world of work for Sheffield lawyers

Will disputes experts at a Sheffield law firm are attracting business from across the world.

Irwin Mitchell's Will, Trust and Estate Disputes team, based at the company’s offices in Sheffield city centre, has dealt with clients from the Middle East, Asia, Australia and North America.

Louise Sykes, who leads the team, said: “It has been fantastic to provide support to people from so many different places - although I must admit we had to reach for the map when we were contacted from Tajikistan.”

Ms Sykes said: “We also feel that high-profile cases in the media have led people across the globe to have a much better understanding of the issue of contesting wills and how they can bring a claim in relation to an inheritance or estate dispute.”
