Anna Chen is a member of the firm’s Litigation and Private Client Services practice groups, focusing on estate litigation and estate law. Assisting clients when disputes arise involving wills, trusts, inheritances, estate administration and family property division, Anna helps to resolve issues through negotiation, mediation and, when necessary, litigation.

Acting for executors, administrators and trustees, heirs and beneficiaries, Anna both prosecutes and defends claims to best serve the needs of her clients. Her estate litigation expertise includes advising and representing clients on claims for unjust enrichment; applications to remove an executor or trustee; claims to challenge an alleged will or trust or to prove their validity; applications for guardianship; applications for dependants' support; and proceedings to obtain court interpretation of wills and related documents, in addition to many other matters.

Anna also advises on family law, including property division claims, spousal support disputes and family law claims against estates. Estate law and family law often intersect, and Anna has a particular interest in bridging the two areas of law.
