Wills

Having a Will in place for when you die leaves you free to get on living, knowing your affairs are in order.

It provides certainty for your family after you are gone and can be updated as your circumstances or wishes change. We offer a bespoke Will writing service to determine your requirements. If you can’t come to our office, we’re happy to meet you at your home or at hospital if need be.

Power of Attorney

Foreseeing a situation where you are unable to manage your personal health, and financial decisions is hard.

While the circumstances are unlikely, it’s prudent to prepare for this eventuality by appointing someone to have Power of Attorney over your affairs. There are different Powers of Attorney to consider, but our guidance makes assessing and selecting the right type to suit you and your needs much easier.

Gifts of Property

If you’re thinking of transferring property, investments, or other assets to your family members, friends, or a trust before you die, there are a number of important legal points to consider.

These include the impact of the gift on your financial position, disposing of assets significantly under market value, and the complexities of inheritance tax, capital gains tax or your future care fees liability. With our help you can make sure you’re preparing for your future responsibly.

Court of Protection

If you or a loved one doesn’t have an Enduring or Lasting Power of Attorney in place

An application to the Court of Protection appoints Deputies to act on behalf of people who are unable to make decisions about their personal health and financial affairs. We can advise when this is necessary and guide you smoothly through the complex process.

Tax Planning

Tax planning shouldn’t be one size fits all.

Our team of specialists can navigate you through the confusing waters of tax planning, including inheritance tax and capital gains tax, providing you with an individual, tailor-made tax-efficient strategy.

Trust Creation and Administration

Financial planning for future goals, milestones, and expenses is paramount.

If you’re considering creating a trust – or perhaps you need help with the administration of an existing trust – then we can help you choose one that’s suitable for you and your family to deliver the maximum benefits for you all in the years to come.

Estate Administration

What Happens When Someone Dies?

The death of a loved one can be emotional and difficult for everyone involved. But with legal steps to take in the wake of that loss, having the advice of solicitors that you know and trust can take a huge weight off.

We’re here to offer support and practical advice, obtain Grants of Representation, administer estates, collect assets, pay debts, settle inheritance tax, and anything else that is required.

We know each situation is as unique as the person who has passed away, which is why our services are tailored to suit you. This might mean taking things slowly, liaising with a large number of family members, or taking the time to resolve complex issues so that you don’t have to deal with them alone.

Family Partnerships and Family Companies

Our ageing population has transformed the way we handle financial, family, and estate-planning issues.
