Private client solicitors

Comprehensive range of services

We offer a comprehensive range of private client services through our team of highly experienced solicitors.

Many of our clients who instruct us for their most important and sensitive legal needs are longstanding clients who may initially have instructed us on a business or property matter dating back to the firm’s inception in 1976.

All of our clients trust us implicitly to take care of the things that matter most in their lives.

At some point in our lives we all need private client advice (for example, Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, inheritance tax planning or Probate) so having a firm of solicitors you can rely on for both business and personal legal advice is something our clients tell us they value highly.

Our team also includes a number of highly specialised litigators who are experts in private client related litigation, such as contentious Probate, Trusts and family and business disputes as well as complex multijurisdictional cases.

Some of the typical private client instructions we receive include:

  • Wills – we provide expert advice on all structures of wills – whether leaving assets directly or including asset protection, and potential tax mitigation, through Trust structures and accompanying Letters of Wishes
  • Probate – assistance with all aspects of estate administration, including contentious situations
  • Trusts – we offer expert advice on all aspects of Trusts, including their creation and termination, trustees’ duties and liabilities, beneficiaries’ rights, contentious Trust matters and Declarations of Trust
  • Powers of Attorney – preparation, registration (where applicable) and use of General, Business and Lasting Powers of Attorney
  • Court of Protection – concerning Deputyship appointments and applications
  • Estate planning – including tax law planning and advice, succession and exit planning for family owned businesses, property and assets
  • Advice for clients who have complicated arrangements with assets or business interests,  internationally and in the UK

If you need a private client solicitor, please do get in contact. We would be delighted to talk to you.

Our specialist solicitors can help with both UK and international legal issues.
