Natasha has extensive experience of wills, trusts and probate matters. She is regularly instructed as sole counsel on matters of significant value from pre-action through to trial or mediation. She has been published in the Trusts and Estates Law & Tax Journal several times and is currently undertaking the ACTAPS professional development course.

She has considerable experience of inheritance claims by spouses and adult children particularly instances where conduct is a serious factor due to alleged physical and/or sexual abuse.

Natasha was instructed on a complex breach of trust and knowing receipt claim involving 9 parties which was listed for a 10 day trial. She was successful in a dispute concerning removal of personal representatives (Baston v Osment & Fox & others [2021]) whereby she secured an order that the executors pay her client’s costs, her client being a beneficiary, and an order that both executors (lay and professional) were denied their indemnity from the estate.

Natasha successfully appeared in 2 joined trials heard in the Chancery Division of the High Court (Scott v Allen [2019]; Smith, Binns & Clarke v Scott [2020]). She acted for the administrator in a claim concerning the presumption of revocation, propounding for a will and an application for his removal. Natasha also represented him in a claim for an account and a declaration as to ownership of property, the main asset being secured in the interim as a result of her successful application for a freezing injunction in the sum of £625,000.

Natasha acted as junior to Leslie Blohm QC in respect of the administration of the estate of the late Barry Pring, a case which received national press coverage. This concerned a millionaire who died intestate in the Ukraine and the issue of forfeiture.

Natasha was sole counsel for the defendants in Sollis v Leyshon & Leyshon [2018] EWHC 2853 (Ch). This was a complex 3-day trial concerning breach of trust, duress, proprietary estoppel, resulting trusts, unconscionability, undue influence and unjust enrichment.
