The Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS) was established on Monday 8th September, 1997 for lawyers specialising in contentious trust and probate work. Our website will keep members updated electronically, via the Internet, and will be regulary updated. Currently online are the ACTAPS newsletter, our code of conduct, membership directory, and press releases. Enjoy your stay.

The launch meeting of ACTAPS took place in the presence of Mr Justice Lightman and Chief Chancery Master Dyson. The objects of The Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS) are to provide a forum for specialists to exchange experience, know-how and an appreciation of the law and statutes in this specialist area; to hold seminars, conferences and meetings for the discussion of contentious trust and probate issues; to promote the enhancement of the specific skills specialisation and expertise in this area by the provision of education and training and, where possible, to enable representations to be made to the appropriate governmental and judicial bodies in relation to contentious trust and probate issues.

Membership of ACTAPS, which costs £75.00 per annum, is open to solicitors, barristers and legal executives who are substantially engaged in contentious trust and probate law and practice.
