Company overview

Launched in 2022, Harrogate-based IDR Law is the only UK law firm to specialise solely in the resolution of contentious wills, probate and trust disputes.


From day one, we were set up to work remotely, so we could offer our lawyers the opportunity to work flexibly with paid overtime and a healthy balance between work and home. Because of this, we’ve been able to attract the best talent, with a 20-strong team based across the UK, with 90% of our workforce made up of women. It’s also the most productive and engaged team I’ve experienced working with.
