Hannah MantleSenior Associate, Dispute Resolution
Hannah is a senior associate who specialises in a broad range of disputes involving trusts and estates.
She is highly experienced in advising on contentious private client matters, such as claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 and related questions of domicile; will disputes including validity, rectification and construction; professional negligence claims; inherited property disputes including proprietary estoppel and claims under TLATA 1996; disputes involving trust or estate administration; and applications to approve sales of foreign property on behalf of minor children.
Hannah also advises on contentious Court of Protection matters, including statutory will and lifetime gift applications, contested deputyship applications and disputes regarding the registration of Lasting and Enduring Powers of Attorney (LPA/EPA).
She acts for claimants and defendants, based in the UK or overseas, whether private individuals or professionals. She ensures that each client achieves the best result for them – taking cases to a final Court hearing where necessary, and encouraging settlement and mediation wherever appropriate.
Hannah studied French and Arabic at the University of London, before obtaining distinctions in the GDL and LPC at the College of Law. She joined Forsters from Russell-Cooke in 2019.
