The comfort that comes with knowing your wishes will be followed

There are many reasons why you might have decided to make your Will, or to review a Will you already have in place. We will listen carefully to your objectives, and make sure your Will achieves them

You may have experienced a major life change or event, such as a marriage, a property purchase, a separation, or other change to your family circumstances. There could also be financial factors affecting your decision to write or review your Will, such as a desire to save inheritance tax. You may want to go ahead simply because you know that writing a Will is a responsible and sensible thing to do.
Regardless why you have taken the decision to write a Will, it is important it is drafted by a specialist Solicitor who can make sure that it is valid, accurately reflects your wishes and, where necessary, provides protection against potential threats to family wealth such as tax and divorce. This is where we can assist you, providing the comfort of knowing that your wishes will be followed after your death.

Your wishes, carried out as you choose

Decisions on who you will leave your assets and possessions to and who will deal with your property and affairs after you die are deeply personal. They can also have significant consequences for you and your family. 

Setting out your wishes in a well written Will is the best way to be sure matters will be settled in the way you choose. You may also want to decide who to appoint as your executor, or explore setting up a trust.
We can support you in all of these decisions. 

When is a good time for me to make a new Will?

Write or review your Will if:

    You have just married or divorced 
    You have re-married and you have children from an earlier marriage 
    You have just bought a property 
    You have made a lot of money selling a business or property 
    You are living with a partner but are not married 
    You have a partner and are unmarried but own a property or run a business together 
    You have an illness that could impact your capacity to make decisions 
    You have high value on-shore or off-shore assets, or a business 

Practitioners are experts in their field, providing high-quality advice.
