Edward Hewitt acts for successful widow in inheritance dispute with stepchildren

Edward Hewitt represented Helen Dines, the widow of the late Graham Dines, in an inheritance dispute with her two stepchildren.

After Mr Dines’ death, a company which he had left to his two children, Provincial Equity Finance Ltd, brought a claim against Mrs Dines, arguing that 12 buy-to-let properties in Bournemouth registered in Mrs Dines’ sole name were held on resulting trust for the company, and that Mrs Dines also owed it £130,000.

At the conclusion of a 6-day trial, the High Court dismissed all of the company’s claims.

Edward was instructed by Kingsley Napley.
