Family Wealth Litigation

In a family wealth dispute, generations of hard work can change hands in a single lawsuit. At Geiger Prell, we help family members keep what is theirs, and we help family members deprived of their fair share.

Our experience includes the removal of corrupt trustees, challenging and defending the legitimacy of wills and codicils, bringing claims of undue influence to trial, protecting the family wealth of clients under attack, and preserving millions of dollars through settlements and judgments. We take as much time to understand sibling rivalries and family dynamics as the law and the facts require, because the key to resolving any case may reside deep in the past.

Our family wealth dispute clients include:

  • The widow of a Cato Institute founder in a lawsuit for control of the organization
  • Co-trustees and beneficiaries against a sibling and former co-trustee regarding her administration of the family’s trust
  • Beneficiaries against their trustee over the administration of Kansas farmland
  • A nephew against his uncles in a community banking dispute
  • A brother against his sister in a Johnson County trial of undue influence over the modification of a will
  • A sister against her brothers and mother over profit distributions from a consumer goods empire

Based in Overland Park, Kansas, Geiger Prell serves clients throughout the Kansas City area, in both Kansas and Missouri. To talk with us about a family wealth dispute, please call us at 913.661.2430.
