Wills, Probate & Trusts
If you don’t have a Will you may end up leaving much of your wealth to the Government instead of your family and loved ones. Wouldn’t you rather that money went to the people you choose?
Creating a Will offers you this opportunity along with many other benefits such as ensuring your estate doesn’t pay more inheritance tax than is needed, removing headaches (and heartaches) for your loved ones, making sure your funeral wishes are clearly set out, and offering you the chance to appoint guardians to care of your children after you’re gone.
Our legal experts are here to assist you in creating a Will ensuring you have the security and peace of mind for the future knowing your wishes will be fulfilled.
Making a Will is a great way to remove any guesswork and reduce the risk of any disputes ensuring your family don’t have to deal with any difficult administrative affairs while they are grieving for you.

Are you risking your family’s wealth?
Grieving families are unwittingly throwing away their wealth by making mistakes with probate.
In 2017, families paid a record £5.2 billion in inheritance tax – much of it unnecessarily – because of avoidable errors. Executing a Will is a huge responsibility, and this is why it is essential that you seek expert legal advice when dealing with the probate of an estate.

Trusts and Estate Planning
Trusts provide considerable scope to pass on assets or reduce tax liability by placing the asset outside of your estate.
We can act as trustees on your behalf or draft trust documentation to place the trusteeship with your nominated individuals.
Our specialist practitioners will advise how these documents can be best used to support your circumstances and will draft them in accordance with your wishes.
