This can range from assisting clients with divorces while also dealing with estate planning, wills, trusts, lasting powers of attorney and related matters, or it may be acting in the case of a simple or contested probate for a recently passed loved one.

Our expertise

Our department brings together our team of lawyers and external specialists we work with, that can advise on all areas of family law and tax and estate planning, ranging from divorce and financial settlements to personal wealth management and tax advice. Some of our clients need one-off guidance, but other clients instruct us throughout their lifetime, to provide ongoing advice on their personal and family matters. Every family is different and every estate is unique. We understand this and we work with barristers, accountants and tax specialists and, where appropriate, financial planners to create a bespoke plan that works for you and what you want to achieve.

We work together to design and then implement your individual strategy, in order to provide solutions and an agreed plan of action.

A will enables you to decide and direct what will happen to your money, assets, investments and possessions upon your passing away. For more complex and wealthier estates, estate planning is essential to make sure your wealth is protected for you and your family. By structuring your assets, you can make sure everyone is provided for in the future. Lasting powers of attorney have become increasingly common and essential in recent years. A will only takes-effect on death, whereas the lasting powers of attorney provide protection to you and your loved ones during your lifetime, should you lose mental capacity due to illness or accident.
