Wills and Planning for the Future

From wills and probate to lasting power of attorney and deputyship, our private client lawyers provide specialist advice and help with all aspects of life planning and estate management.

Over half of UK adults do not have a will, and many of us have not discussed our wishes for later life or sudden loss of capacity with family or friends. It can be hard to think about the worst happening, but putting plans in place now can make things easier for loved ones in the future and give you peace of mind.

Wills, probate and life planning services

How we work

Whether you need help with wills or a power of attorney, are dealing with probate, or supporting a loved one with their personal affairs, a dedicated private client lawyer will ensure you understand your options and guide you through the process step-by-step.

We will start by meeting with you to understand your circumstances and requirements, and discuss what is involved. Your lawyer will deal with your case from start to finish and keep you informed throughout the process. A member of the team will always be available to speak to about your case on a day-to-day basis.

Before we start working for you, we will agree with you:

  • exactly what needs to be done
  • who will be doing the work
  • how much it will cost or how the fee will be calculated

It was an absolute pleasure to have dealt with Karyna. We had a very sensitive situation which she handled with empathy and professionalism. She made the two home visits to my parents, was very personable and took away any anxieties they had. Thank you for giving such great service.
