Area of Practice
Trusts, Wills & Probate
Legacy Planning: Wills & Trusts
Planning your legacy is an important part of managing your wealth to ensure that your assets are distributed to your intended beneficiaries and to reduce conflict in your family after your passing. Our lawyers are able to assist in preparing simple or complex testamentary wills which reflect clients’ intentions and remove ambiguity in all estate matters and prevent legal challenges in the future.
Our lawyers are also skilled in helping you structure and create trusts in order to protect, manage, and preserve your assets. From private family trusts and testamentary trusts to discretionary trusts and charitable trusts, creating a trust helps to make certain your intention and chosen beneficiaries.
We also advise on and assist in preparing Lasting Powers of Attorney and applications under the Mental Capacity Act, e.g. to appoint deputies or make testamentary wills, in situations where a person has lost the mental capacity to make key decisions.
Probate & Estate Administration
When a loved one passes on, our team of experienced and meticulous lawyers can help you through the process of applying for a Grant of Probate (where there is a valid will) or Grant of Letters of Administration (where there is no will). These Grants enable the executor or administrator to manage and distribute the assets of the deceased.
While such periods can be grief-filled, we have walked with many estate executors and administrators as they managed the deceased’s assets, ensuring smooth and proper distribution of assets to the right beneficiaries.
