The Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS) was established for lawyers specialising in contentious trust and probate work. Its aim is 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.

Thompson Smith and Puxon currently have one member of ACTAPS, Chartered Legal Executive, Sharon Auton, who leads TSP’s Dispute Resolution team.
