Kate Saunders



I joined Irwin Mitchell in July 2004 as a paralegal and worked in the Wills and Probate department as a member of their Will writing team for seven years. I was a team leader of one of the Will writing teams for approximately two years.

I started my training contact with Irwin Mitchell in September 2011 and joined the Wills, Trust and Estates disputes team as a trainee solicitor in July 2012. I qualified as a solicitor in the team in September 2013. 

I deal with claims that cover all types of Will, trust and estate disputes. These include:

  • Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependant) Act 1975 Claims
  • Challenges to the Validity of a Will
  • Claims relating to lost or damaged Wills
  • Disputes between the beneficiaries of a Will
  • Disputes between or relating to Executors and/or Trustees
  • Issues relating to Enduring Powers of Attorney/Lasting Powers of Attorney and potential financial abuse issues discovered after death
  • Statutory Will Disputes
  • Trust Disputes
  • Claims to remove Executors
  • Professional Negligence Claims in respect of the preparation of Wills

I act on behalf of beneficiaries, executors, trustees and any person who is seeking legal assistance in respect of bringing or defending a claim of who would like advice relating to the above areas.

This area of law often involves disputes between family members which require a sensible solution to a difficult situation. I am committed to providing clear legal advice and will always aim to suggest appropriate ways of resolving disputes in a cost effective and efficient manner.
