Wills & Estate Planning
You may be looking to the future and to make or update a Will, often also requiring expert advice on Inheritance Tax (IHT) or Capital Gains Tax (CGT) planning. Our solicitors have extensive experience in advising on tax efficient solutions and are able to assist with more complex arrangements, including for estates involving property and business interests or overseas assets.
Probate, Estate Administration & Disputes
When someone close to you sadly passes away, we can advise on all aspects of probate and the administration of a person's estate, as well as more practical matters, at this difficult time. If an inheritance dispute unfortunately occurs, we also have solicitors with expertise in this specialist area.
Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs)
Further, we can advise on Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs) and existing Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPAs). We have particular expertise in relation to applications to the Court of Protection and are able to advise attorneys and deputies where someone has unfortunately lost capacity and is no longer able to manage their own financial and property or health related affairs.
For All of Your Legal Needs
Our comprehensive range of legal services allows you to manage and coordinate all of your private client needs, and where relevant your commercial interests, more efficiently and effectively using a single firm of solicitors.
