If you need to update your Will, apply for Probate or wish to make a claim for an increased share of an Estate, we can assist.

There are several reasons to plan your estate in advance and have well drafted wills and similar documents.  

Firstly, you need to know that you and your finances will be looked after by a responsible person should you become unable to do so. 

Secondly, to ensure your estate is dealt with as you wish after your death. 

Finally, to minimize the legal and financial issues faced by your family after your death. 

Our experience in the areas of family law and estate litigation gives us a particular insight in to the ways family and will disputes can potentially affect family and business succession arrangements.  

We know how to draft wills to avoid the pitfalls.
