Managing your private and financial affairs can feel overwhelming at times – allow our friendly and knowledgeable Private Client specialists to help you steer the right course and protect your future.
Our services are distinct from those offered by financial advisers and we work alongside other advisers. Our role is to provide clear, independent advice on the legal issues and practicalities of our clients’ personal financial position, often alongside advice on their business interests.
Grant of Probate
We also offer a “Grant of Probate only” service. We will obtain the Grant of Probate on your behalf so that you can continue with finalising the administration of the estate.
Administration of Estates
Following the death of a loved one, it is important that their affairs are dealt with properly. This is known as the Administration of the Estate. It ensures that the correct people entitled to the assets receive them and that any debts are settled. We will handle the entire process for you from start to finish.
Creation of trusts can be a valuable part of personal financial planning. Our specialist lawyers can guide you through the legal and tax issues, whether the trusts are within a will, lifetime settlements for family members or trusts for specific purposes.
Having a Will in place will help avoid family disputes and potentially a higher tax liability if your estate exceeds the inheritance tax threshold. We will make the process a simple and positive experience. We will be able to create a Will that is tailored to your needs to ensure that your assets are dealt with properly in the future.
Lasting Powers of Attorney
Lasting Powers of Attorney are legal documents which appoint people to manage your property and financial and health and welfare matters if you are unable to do so yourself. Setting up the documents will allow you to appoint people you trust, should the worst happen to you.
