Higgs & Sons : Craig Ridge

I lead the contentious trusts and probate team, having joined Higgs & Sons as a Partner in December 2019. Prior to joining Higgs & Sons I was a Partner of another large regional law firm.

I have been advising on all contentious aspects of probate, estate administration and trusts for over eighteen years. Typically, I assist clients contemplating or facing challenges to wills; disputes between executors/trustees; disputes between executors/trustees and beneficiaries; and claims for financial provision under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975. I assist with situations involving the invalidity of wills or trust documents as well as errors within the administration of estates or trusts. I am able to advise upon the rectification of errors and deal with professional negligence claims.

I act for beneficiaries, executors and trustees (both lay and professional) and people with prospective claims within an estate or trust.  My particular expertise involves dealing with complex or high value estates and trusts, typically involving businesses and property or investment portfolios, however, the team at Higgs & Sons is able to guide parties through the contentious elements of all trusts and estates.

I am an affiliate member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners and am recognised as Leading Individual by the Legal 500 2019.
