We carry out our legal services with integrity and honesty at all times.

Wills, Trusts & Probate

Many of us don’t like to think about our own mortality but as Benjamin Franklin said there are only two things certain in life: death and taxes. Making a Will means that when you die your estate is dealt with according to your wishes and, with professional planning, a Will can also make sure that your estate is arranged in the most tax-efficient way. We ensure that the process of making your Will is as simple as possible, whilst providing expert legal advice in plain English.

Inheritance Tax Planning

If your estate is likely to be over the inheritance tax free allowances available to you (known as the ‘nil rate bands’) we can provide specialist legal advice on how best to arrange your assets to mitigate or extinguish the inheritance tax bill on your death. In conjunction with trusted and established local independent financial advisors we can work to provide the best solution for you, to ensure that your needs are met whilst protecting your loved ones from any unnecessary tax bill after you’ve gone.

Residential Property

We recognise that buying and selling property is one of the most stressful things you can do. Whether you are a first-time buyer or a professional property investor our team of experienced property lawyers can guide you through each stage of the process providing clear, straight-forward advice.

Commercial Property

The services we offer include the acquisition and sale of commercial property, commercial leases and buy-to-let. We can advise on planning and development and deal with lease renewal proceedings under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954.

Lasting Powers of Attorney

Lasting Powers of Attorney are an essential part of future planning. A Lasting Power of Attorney allows you to nominate one or more people you trust to assist you and make decisions on your behalf in the event you are no longer able to make decisions for yourself. Our experienced lawyers can talk you through the various options available and make sure that your Lasting Power of Attorney meets your particular wishes and needs.

Family law services

We can provide expert legal advice on all aspects of family law, whether you find yourself facing a divorce, are looking to protect your interests using a pre or post nuptial agreement, are the victim of domestic violence or are involved in a dispute concerning children.

Estate Administration

Estate administration is the process of handling a person’s legal, financial and tax affairs after their death. The process differs depending on whether the deceased left a valid Will, and our estate administration specialists are experienced in both dealing with testate estates (where a valid Will exists) and intestate estates (where either the deceased never made a Will, or their Will was not legally valid). Our specialises legal advisors will be able to gently guide you through every step of the process.

Lease extensions

Our experienced team can advise on both voluntary and statutory lease extensions, and we can also make Court or tribunal applications where appropriate.

Our friendly and knowledgeable lawyers will guide you through the process every step of the way.

Litigation

There are any number of reasons someone can find themselves in the unfortunate situation where a dispute arises. When a problem occurs, our expert litigation team will be able to provide you with prompt and clear advice to help settle the matter quickly and without the need for protracted and expensive proceedings wherever possible.
