Probate and Private Client

Everyone needs top class legal advice in relation to their private life at some stage — buying or selling a house, making a will or an enduring power of attorney, administering the estate of a friend or a loved one or planning the succession of a business or of family assets.

What we have done for others

  • We have provided efficient and comprehensive estate planning advice on the disposal of assets in a tax efficient manner both pre-death and post-death and on potential taxation pitfalls.
  • On a daily basis we advise legal personal representatives on the administration of estate both in testate and in intestate situations.
  • We have advised both executors and beneficiaries on disputes which arise as a result of the administration of estates and in the construction of Wills.
  • We draft Wills and trusts in a manner which is tailored to meet our clients’ requirements, including trusts for the protection of minor children, disabled persons and persons with addiction problems.
