We take time to listen, to understand what you want to achieve and why – as well as advising on how the decisions you make now will impact on other connected matters.

Our legal expertise includes advising on and preparing wills and trusts; inheritance tax planning; succession planning for businesses and landed estates; powers of attorney, and later life issues.

You and your family are at the very centre of our thinking. And we don’t act alone. We put together the right team for each client, so that your particular requirements can be met. Our team includes some of the leading experts in this area, and, where necessary, we draw on the expertise of our specialist tax and financial advisers, or our Court of Protection team – which provides services in relation to mental capacity issues and Court of Protection deputyship.

For clients who own farms or estates, we have many years of experience in assisting with the transfer of the land and associated businesses to the next generation in a smooth and tax efficient manner. This often includes planning to improve the availability of inheritance tax reliefs and preparing Wills which achieve their succession planning objectives.

Our clients include those with complex or high value estates and owner managers wishing to secure the legacy of their business and provide for their dependants in a tax-efficient manner. We advise individuals, families, family businesses, professional trust corporations, landed estates and charitable foundations.
