Safeguarding Your Wealth

Probate & Estate Administration

The death of a person close to you can bring shock, sadness and often confusion about what happens next.

One of the most overwhelming aspects can be the sheer amount of paperwork and estate administration that you need to attend to. Where there is substantial wealth and property involved, that sense of burden is only increased.

Our probate and estate lawyers can help reduce your administrative burden and sensitively advise on the key decisions that need to be taken when managing an estate. 

We can help with:

  • Administration of estates and trusts
  • Valuation issues
  • Claims for property relief from inheritance tax
  • Inheritance tax returns
  • Grants of probate or letters of administration and advising on post-death variations
  • Contesting or defending a Will

We also deal with cross-border succession issues and grants for UK assets held by persons who reside or are domiciled abroad.
