Few of us want to think too hard about old age and death but planning for the future is important. A well-structured Will can not only make sure things are clear and organised for those you leave behind, but avoid taxes and unnecessary challenges to validity or substance. Our lawyers don’t simply write Wills but are specialists in wealth management. That means we look at the bigger picture. Asking you what you want to do with your wealth and when. Each Will we produce is bespoke and often highly detailed and complex. We’ll look at whether you want to make lifetime gifts, putting assets into trusts, philanthropic planning as well as tax and estate efficient asset structuring. As your assets and the legal framework develop we’ll respond with redrafts and changes. We provide consistent, exemplary knowledge. We understand your needs and ensure you continue to make smarter decisions – both for your financial future and your family’s.
