Wills and Estates

We can provide assistance on the following:
Drafting wills. This is a very important document as you decide who you want to inherit under your will.

As your assets and circumstances change it will be necessary to review and change your will to ensure that it is up to date.
Administering estates. We can help with those closest to the deceased in dealing with their estate whether there is a will (testate)or no will (intestate).
Advising on succession and estate planning. We can identify the most tax-efficient way of dealing with the transfer of your assets.
We also advise in the areas of Enduring Powers of Attorney and Wardship.
