Guy Holland says

'It is a High Court decision in a claim we made on behalf of two minors against their father’s £3.5 million estate under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.  We obtained a substantial award.  It is likely to be treated as an important decision from the perspective of the correct approach to assessing claims by minors and in particular how to approach the calculation of their future maintenance needs.  The court approved our reliance upon Ogden tables rather than Duxbury which one usually uses in IA cases and applied a negative investment rate in calculating future needs.'
