No matter how modest and straightforward or extensive and complex they may be, your assets should be managed in the most tax-efficient way and according to your wishes, and be passed onto your heirs without undue taxation or delay. This can best be done by having a Will, prepared by an experienced solictior who takes the time to understand your individual circumstances and preferences.
At any time, illness or an accident may mean you can no longer manage your business and family affairs. We can make sure you have a Lasting Power of Attorney in place so that a trusted friend or relative can manage your affairs for your benefit and your dependents. If it is too late to plan ahead and someone you care for is no longer able to take rational decisions, we can still help you using the provisions of the Court of Protection.
During Probate our experienced lawyers will provide support and practical advice to your dependents whilst making sure that the legal necessities are attended to properly.
