Wills, Trust and Probate

We specialise in the following Private Client fields:

  • Wills
  • Enduring Power of Attorney
  • Probate

Wills

It is important to ensure that your estate is divided as you wish. If you do not make a will, pre-existing rules will govern what happens. We offer advice on will drafting, choice of executors, tax and estate planning. We have links with Accountants and Financial Advisers and will ensure that your will is tax efficient for you and your successors.

Power of Attorney

In situations where you or a relative is becoming infirm, it is often sensible to make an Enduring Power of Attorney either for health and wellbeing or financial affairs, or indeed both. This gives legal powers to run your affairs to someone you know and trust, thereby ensuring your best interests will be served in the future. We can draft Enduring Powers of Attorney and deal with the Court of Protection.

Probate

After a death, there are many procedural and legal issues to face. We will assist in a sympathetic way with each step required and give advice on any variation to a will, to ensure the testators' wishes are effected in the most tax efficient way.
