Charlie Young

Director
Disputes and Litigation

Charlie Young, Director, is a member of the Disputes and Litigation Team and heads the firm’s Estate Litigation practice.

With considerable experience in estate and trust disputes, Charlie has been equally successful in achieving positive and cost-efficient outcomes in estate disputes for beneficiaries, executors/administrators, trustees and complainants, with a primary goal at all times being to maintain the size of the estate.

He advises clients in family provision applications, constructive trust claims on estates, disputes about testamentary capacity, informal Wills, challenging probate and a wide range of other estate litigation issues, such as superannuation disputes. His practice also includes working on cases of elder abuse involving financial abuse and medical neglect. His work includes seeking compensation against attorneys, appointing administrators and guardians.

Charlie’s commercial litigation practice of over 10 years involves acting for small and large businesses and individuals across a variety of commercial and property disputes, including contractual disputes, corporate and partnership disputes, mortgage disputes, trade practice issues and general debt recovery.

Charlie has extensive experience in insolvency, particularly bankruptcy. Acting for private individuals or bankruptcy trustees and liquidators, Charlie gives advice on insolvency-related issues such as transfers to defeat creditors, preferential payments, bankrupt deceased estates, and where necessary steers the client through litigation (including public examinations).
