Our Private Client solicitors and legal executives are able to support any aspect of your life from the initial stages of planning for your future to adapting your affairs as life progresses ultimately to the administration of your estates and the probate process. Our commitment is to provide individual solutions to our clients depending on their particular circumstances and requirements.
A Will is the single most important thing you can do to protect your wealth after your death. A properly drafted Will ensures that you decide who receives your estate when you die and that your personal wishes are carried out. Making a Will is not an expensive or complex process but many people put it off, sometimes resulting in unforeseen and difficult circumstances after their death.
Many people choose to appoint us in their Will as the professional Executors of their estate after they die for peace of mind in knowing that their financial affairs will be dealt with efficiently and effectivley without their family having the additional burden of having to decipher the law and work out what needs to be done. We can also help people who have themselves been appointed as Executors following a death or where a person dies without a Will and the legally correct person has the role of administering the estate.
We can assist with reducing or perhaps even eliminating your liability for inheritance tax and we can advise on the best way to retain your wealth with the use of trusts and careful tax planning. The use of trusts, either set up during a person's lifetime or after death, is a complex area that requires careful consideration of trust law and the way that trusts are taxed.
