Our team of lawyers have solid experience in matters concerning the liquidation of estates and representation of heirs in inheritance disputes;
A liquidator’s shortcomings
We have extensive experience in liquidation and problems arising with a liquidator who refuses or neglects to fulfill his duties to the heirs.
We have regularly assisted heirs in resolving their disputes with a liquidator who refuses or neglects to fulfill his obligations and duties.
The most common faults we have dealt with relate specifically to:
- The obligation to do a rending of accounts;
- The obligation to produce an inventory;
- The sale of the assets of an estate under fair and reasonable conditions;
- The liquidation of the assets amongst heirs.
Appropriation of assets
Some of our cases have also involved a liquidator unrightfully taking possession of the estate’s property, compelling us to institute measures to protect the estate’s assets through seizures before judgment, safeguard orders or injunctions.
