Farhan Asghar

I have have expertise in poperty disputes, wills, probate and trusts. I am frequently instructed in a broad range of cases, from matters in the County Court to high-value claims in the High Court.


My work

I routinely advise on challenges to wills and inheretance claims. I also have a wide-ranging property practice which encompasses all aspects of real property litigation and advice. My practice routinely involves parties or properties in foreign jurisdcitions and so I am able to help where foriegn assets may be involved.

Some of the types of cases I have experience in include co-ownership and ToLATA claims; probate disputes; trust disputes;charitable trusts;disputes as to the substantial and procedural validity of wills;wordlwide freezing orders;enforcement of foreign judgments;applications for the removal of executors and trustees;breach of trust/breach of fiduciary duty claims;estoppel claims;undue influence claims;charging orders and orders for sale;claims involving overseas properties;challenging costs decisions either on appeal or at detailed assessment proceedings.

Some of the recent cases I have worked on include:

Ullah V Ullah F10CL410- I am currently instructed in a large multi-million-pound property claim involving very complex claims for breaches of trust, dishonest assistance, and self-dealing.

Din v Aslam PT-2019-0008843 - Instructed in respect of a claim for delivery up of estate assets from a personal represenatative, where a freezing order was also granted due to a risk of dissipation with the Defendant being in a foreign jurisdiction. 

NF v SF - Currently instructed on a claim for an equitable interest in a property, where there was a verbal agreement between a mother and son for the beneficial interest in the property to pass to the son if he paid off the mortgage.

SK V HM - GPT-2020-000663 - Instructed in respect of an estate worth over £10 million, with a  challenge to the validity of 4 wills due to concerns of undue influence.



About me

I have a pro-active hands-on approach and can help you see matters through right from the begining to the end. I can advise and assist on the pre-action stages of a claim, all the way through to trial, as well as dealing with consequential matters such as enforcement and costs challenges. I offer pragmatic solutions and where appropriate will advise on and attend alternative forms of dispute resolution such as mediation.
