Wills are at the centre of any succession plan and a badly drafted Will can lead to costly and drawn out disputes. Legal advice should always be sought from a Will writing solicitor, if you:
share property (with a person other than a spouse)
have recently divorced or remarried
have children from a different relationship
have a business or agricultural assets
have children with special needs who will be provided for in your Will
have assets overseas
To speak to an experienced Will writing solicitor about making or updating your Will, please contact Christine Green on 020 7665 0819.
We have a large and experienced team of Will writing solicitors, led by three specialist partners, providing comprehensive legal advice on Wills and Estate Planning.
Many of our solicitors are members of the Society for Trust Estate Practitioners and are recognised as specialists in this area of law.
Whilst writing your Will, our solicitors will comprehensively consider all of your personal circumstances before advising you on the most tax-efficient structure to protect against the impact of inheritance tax.
We can also provide specialist advice on what can be sensitive and difficult issues, including protecting against claims arising from either divorce or bankruptcy and setting up protective structures for vulnerable beneficiaries who, through mental and physical disability, may find it difficult to manage money.
In addition to preparing your Will, we can also advise you on wider succession planning issues such as making lifetime gifts and ensuring that your personal finances are in order. We work with Independent Financial Advisors who can assist you with all aspects of financial planning and, if you own a family business, our dedicated family business team can offer sophisticated succession planning advice tailored specifically to your business.
The service I received was second to none always friendly nothing too much trouble.
