We are increasingly seeing more issues arising and there are many more high profile cases such as those over Sir Michael Butler's porcelain collection http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-dorset-37451020 or Sir George Martin's estate. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/music/news/the-fifth-beatle-an-unpublished-will-and-a-family-being-torn-apa/

Is there any way to prevent a dispute between family members after the death of a loved one?

You cannot ultimately control the actions of others but good preparation is key.
