Wills, Probate, Trusts and Incapacity
We can help you to think through and prepare for the consequences of your possible incapacity and for your death. Careful and thorough planning can help to minimise potential problems over a whole range of issues – some obvious, some not so obvious.
You may have made your own wealth, you may have inherited your wealth – the chances are a bit of both. We will help you to protect that wealth for you during your life, and for those you wish to benefit following your death.
Mitigating the effects of inheritance tax can always be achieved by sound planning during your lifetime – including and in particular the preparation of a tax-effective Will. It can often also be achieved following death, by the use of a Deed of Variation.
The aim of our Tax/ Wills/Probate department is to help you to safeguard your financial security, and to ensure a smooth transfer of wealth from your generation to the next. Estate planning is critical whatever your age and whatever your circumstances. Our experience and expertise will allow you to prepare for what you need.
We provide specialist services in lifetime planning and following death to executors and beneficiaries of Wills. We also have extensive experience in dealing with the financial affairs of those with disabilities and in advising their families.
