Estate Planning and Wills
Do you own a property?
Do you have any children?
If you answered yes to either of the above are you one of the many individuals who do not have a Will in place?
If so, this is risky, as it means your assets may not pass to the person you want them to or your children may not be looked after by the person you prefer.
Even if you already have a Will, this should be reviewed on a regular basis, say every few years, as your circumstances will inevitably change over time.
We provide specialist advice on the preparation of Wills. These range from straight-forward mirror Wills for couples with uncomplicated estates, to more complex Wills containing sophisticated tax saving structures, and trusts for children, grandchildren and others.
We are specialised in advising on Wills with a cross-border element. Various scenarios can impact upon the type of Will you should have in place. These include:
- If you live in a different country to the one you are from originally.
- If you own assets in a different country to the one you reside in.
Our expert team is leading the way on implementing new laws which can apply to the above scenarios.
Wills are often drafted in conjunction with more detailed tax advice given by us as a part of an overall tax planning structure. However, we also take instructions from clients who use the firm purely for our Wills drafting service.
Our clients often choose to attend our offices for execution of their Will and we provide a free secure Will storage service for all Wills we draft.
