Wills and probate
We have years of practical experience drafting wills and advising clients how to save tax by appropriate use of wills and trusts. We have policies in place to maintain the low rate we charge for inheritance tax information; this has made our expertise and service highly valuable to many of our clients.
We can also help you resolve disputes regarding a party contesting a will. Where avoidable, we aim to resolve complaints before court proceedings begin.
