Welcome to Just Answer.
I will be happy to assist with your question today. I need some time to consider this and compose a response. There is NO need to wait online because you will get an email when I respond. Sometimes it will be minutes, sometimes longer.
I apologise for any unavoidable delay, but rest assured I have not forgotten your question.
your father left you the commercial property and not your brother -
and is your mother mentally capable of knowing what is happening?
what exactly is this commercial property? worth?
what exactly is your brother claiming for?
It’s interesting that the solicitors says that you have an 80% chance of winning but then doesn’t want to continue on a no win no fee basis.
Armed with 80% chance of winning, you may get a solicitor to deal with it on a no win no fee basis and if the barrister will give 80% chance of winning, then the solicitor can obtain After the Event insurance that would pay the legal costs in the event that your defence is not successful.
The fact that the property was transferred to you 4 years ago works in your favour unless your brother is alleging that the transfer was fraudulent or that you in some way influenced or coerced yourself to get the property.
Do you have any specific questions I help with?
I thought that may be the case. Whilst they are a very well respected solicitors, they are extremely large and obviously need to get the freezing so they will not speculate. You will probably need to find a smaller firm.
I’m afraid that we are specifically not allowed to take instructions from here.
If the site were to be a source of potential clients, we would no longer be independent because we would have an interest in pursuing litigation. With no interest in pursuing litigation, we can be really objective with our view is to whether something has a good chance or a limited chance of success.
In any event, for logistical reasons you would be better using a local solicitor .
You can search the Law Society website by postcode and specialism. There is a section “find a solicitor” and you can also search by firm name and individual names if you know them.
I wouldn’t give up until you had spoken to about 30
