Wills & succession planning

The firm offers a high quality, personable service and gives good advice. The lawyers are strong relationship builders who would rather tell a client not to progress in a wrong direction than take a fee for doing so.

Chambers & Partners

Preparing a will is a vital undertaking so that your wishes can be carried out effectively after your death: we encourage you to read our briefing below which explains the importance of properly considered succession planning further.

As your assets (which may include business property, real estate, valuable art works or family heirlooms and papers as well as investments and pensions), your chosen heirs and your wishes are likely to change and evolve over time, it is also important to review your will regularly. 

Our approach

Our approach focuses on gaining an in-depth understanding of your situation and requirements so that we can give you the very best advice both in relation to succession issues and inheritance tax planning.

We are also experienced advisers in relation to complex international, foreign domicile and cross-border issues, working with foreign lawyers where necessary, to give you the assurance that your worldwide assets have been properly dealt with.  Our expertise also includes Wills for the elderly as well as Lasting Powers of Attorney and statutory wills where there are mental capacity issues.

We understand that clients may find themselves in sensitive and difficult situations and, with a partner as the main contact always available for guidance, we will provide clear and finely tuned advice.
