"The solid, knowledgeable and experienced private client team at Pinney Talfourd LLP provides a very good level of service and appropriate advice, and has great understanding of the client's needs, making them feel confident in their undertakings and keeping them informed at all times" - The Legal 500 UK 2019
At Pinney Talfourd, we recognise that the prospect of acting as an Executor and administering the estate of a deceased person can be extremely daunting. Executors are often required to accept the responsibility of administering an estate without any prior experience or knowledge, whilst also grieving for the loss of a loved one.
Executors are primarily concerned with ensuring that they carry out an estate administration properly and fulfil all of their legal obligations. They are often worried about making a mistake and the potential personal liability imposed on them as a result. Our probate lawyers offer free initial consultations to help you gain a clear understanding of the legal obligations imposed on you as an Executor. We are also able to advise relatives about the legal process of administering the estate of someone who dies without making a Will and, in the process, creates an intestacy.
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.
