Wills, Trusts and Probate Services
It is a fact that a huge number of people in the UK do not have a Will and even more have not given thought to making a Power of Attorney.
Although we do not necessarily like to think about our own mortality or what will happen as we grow old, Wills and Powers of Attorney are an investment in your future. They allow you to take control and have a say over decisions that will be made in relation to you, your finances and your assets in the future.
We have a dedicated specialist team of solicitors and Will writers who are regulated by the Law Society and who can provide comprehensive advice on Wills, Powers of Attorney and life planning.
In addition our expert team has extensive experience in dealing with the administration of estates when an individual has passed away, obtaining grants of probate and providing a range of probate services either as an executor or an adviser to the executors.

Many people worth about what will happen to vulnerable family members or important family assets after they are gone. Setting up a trust can allow you to make sure everything will be taken care of according to your wishes, protecting the people and things you value in the future.
Our expert trusts lawyers can assist you with setting up a variety of different types of trusts to match your circumstances. For example, they can be used to make arrangements for the care of loved ones who need support, protect a family home or business or ring-fencing compensation from a personal injury claim. That way you can relax, knowing everything is taken care of.
Many people worry about what will happen to them if they may lose capacity to make decisions for themselves in the future, for example due to dementia or other degenerative diseases. A Power of Attorney can allow you to empower a trusted loved one, or professional such as a solicitor, to make these decisions for you in the future if required.
Our Power of Attorney solicitors can provide sensitive but practical advice about the provisions you need to take to ensure your financial affairs, living arrangements and medical care are in safe hands. This can give you reassurance that your needs will be taken care of no matter what happens.
If you are required to deal with the estate of a loved one after they have passed away, this can be highly stressful, confusing and time-consuming. If you are acting as the executor of a loved one’s Will, or they have died without leaving a Will, handling their estate can feel like a heavy burden.
Our probate lawyers offer a sensitive but practical approach and can guide and support you through the entire probate process, including obtaining a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration, disposing of property and other assets that are part of the estate and handling inheritance tax. Our goal is to make handling probate as simple and painless as possible, allowing you to focus on processing your grief.
Unfortunately, inheritance disputes are all to common, where the families, friends and other beneficiaries of a Will or trust disagree over the details. These disputes can become highly emotive, as well as being time consuming and expensive to resolve if not handled correctly.
Our inheritance disputes solicitors can work with you to find fast, effective solutions wherever possible, allowing the conflict to be diffused and a mutually acceptable solution to be found. Where this is not possible, we can ensure you get the best possible representation in court to ensure your interests stay protected.
