Making a Will may seem like a grim chore but it is the best way to support your family at an incredibly difficult time. Without a Will clearly expressing your wishes your loved ones may not inherit your estate.

A Will gives you control over what happens to your home and money after you die, enabling you to state how you would like your assets to be distributed, by whom, how any businesses should be dealt with, and most importantly, who will look after your children.

A Will is really a letter to the future which can give your family and other loved ones financial security and a clear path for the road ahead.

Inheritance tax planning is an integral part of Will planning and our lawyers can advise you on how to minimise inheritance tax liabilities. Your lawyer will take the time to tailor recommendations to your particular circumstances. Using tools like trusts and tax planning can further aid this process, protecting your wealth from unnecessary claims, including protection from demands that may arise out of previous relationships, or from future costs, such as care home fees.

Our Approach

Whoever you are, wherever you are, and however old you are, you need a Will.  Our caring lawyers will guide you through the decision-making and make the whole process as straightforward as possible.



What is a Will?

A Will is a legal document which sets out how your estate is to be distributed upon your death, in other words, who is to benefit from your estate. It is also used to mitigate Inheritance Tax, consider planning for care home fees, and protect assets for members of the family such as children from a previous marriage.


How do I have a Will prepared?

You need to get legal advice on drafting a Will as there are many aspects to consider which a legal adviser will highlight to you. You are welcome to contact a member of our Private Client team to discuss this further.
