Solicitors in Essex & London
Our specialist team of probate lawyers in Essex and London have been recognised as one of the leading private client departments in the UK by Legal 500; they offer a wealth of experience and specialist skills to deal with probate and estate administration matters, from dealing with the simplest of estates, through to more complex taxable estates that may involve high-value assets, businesses or foreign assets.
Our lawyers offer services that range from obtaining a Grant of Probate only, through to dealing with the entire estate administration from start to finish on your behalf.
Taking place regularly on a Saturday in our Upminster office, our Probate advice surgery aims to tackle and answer questions on a variety of probate law issues, including duties and responsibilities of an executor, dying without a will - intestacy, estate administration services, inheritance tax.
We also hold quarterly free seminars. Ensure that your affairs are in order to minimise stress for your family before and after your death. Join one of our free events to find out more about the different types of Will and LPA, find out more about contesting a Will, or tackle the complications that come with dementia. All events will offer the opportunity to get free tailored advice from one of our solicitors over a tea or coffee afterwards.
All of our events are completely free and enable you to discuss at a top level your private client concerns with one of our expert solicitors based in Essex and London. Appointments can be made in advance by using our booking form on this page, or drop-in sessions are also available throughout the morning.

Over half of people in the UK currently do not have a Will and this can lead to unfortunate difficulties upon death. You may not have a valid Will or a family member may even contest your wishes! This means that your assets may not pass to whom you want to inherit, leaving your loved ones in financial stress and hardship. It also can be time-consuming and expensive to resolve. Over 850,000 people in the UK have Dementia; this figure has been estimated to rise to 1 million in 2025. Dementia can lead to you not being able to make your own decisions. Did you know that a simple document - a Lasting Power of Attorney - nominates a person to make financial or healthcare decisions on your behalf?
Our Wills Team will cover the essentials of a Will and other supporting documents such as LPAs. Our Contested Probate Team will also advise on circumstances where a dispute may most frequently arise, ths helping you to avoid the pitfalls. Join our experts for this completely free presentation followed by some free tailored advice over a tea or coffee afterwards.
