Probate & Estates

Dealing with the personal affairs of someone who has died is often a mixture of difficult emotions and frustration. Sorting out an estate takes time and is often extremely complex.

Whether you need a little assistance and advice, or would like us to take the burden off your shoulders completely, we can help. We work closely with everyone involved to ensure that the process is managed efficiently, effectively and that your personal interests are prioritised.

Our International Private Client team also has considerable expertise in legal matters where offshore assets are involved or where UK assets form part of the estate of a non-resident.

We offer competitive fixed fees for estates that are simple and straightforward, but our team is also highly experienced in handling complicated estates with difficult tax and trust issues.
