Richard Wilson QC is instructed by Wilsons Solicitors in Habberfield v Habberfield  EWCA Civ 890
Judgment in Habberfield v Habberfield  EWCA Civ 890 was handed down on Thursday 23rd May after the judge ruled in favour of the Respondent, Lucy Habberfield, in an inheritance dispute. The court heard that Lucy Habberfield had been promised that the family dairy farm would be bequeathed to her by her late father. However, following a fight with her sister, Sarah, Lucy left the family home and subsequently brought a legal claim for the farm she was promised.
Lord Justice Lewison, who sat with Lord Justice Moylan and Lady Justice Rose dismissed the appeal and acknowledged that Jane Habberfield (Appellant) will need to pay her daughter £1.1million to compensate for her devotion to the family holding.
Richard Wilson QC acted for the Appellant (instructed by Wilsons Solicitors).
