Executors have incredibly complex and onerous work to undertake in large and complex estates, as the case below illustrates. Many tens if not hundreds of thousands of pounds will have been spent on both parties legal fees, which could have potentially have been avoided if the matter was dealt with by a (neutral) professional. 

I often find that many Executors and Personal Representatives do not fully understand their duties, or the fact there is a personal responsibility/liability attached to this role. 

In estates of this size, where beneficiaries are also executors, the potential for a costly dispute is significant.
