Probate Solicitors

Our solicitors can help you through Probate and estate administration with a tailored service offering exactly as much assistance or advice as you need.

If you’ve been named the executor of someone’s Will, you’re responsible for administering their estate. That means organising their assets, paying debts and taxes, and distributing what’s left according to the instructions left in the Will.

Before you can do this, you need to apply for a Grant of Probate.

We can help with and advise on any of these duties including:

  • Applying for a Grant of Probate
  • Investigating and valuing the estate
  • Collecting estate funds
  • Filling out income and inheritance tax returns and paying any tax due
  • Paying creditors
  • Selling or transferring ownership of property
  • Distributing funds and assets according to the Will
  • Managing any Trusts in the Will.

Our Probate lawyers can assist with as much or as little of the process as you like. We can simply get a Grant of Probate for you, or you can pass all of your executor duties on to us.

We can also advise on estate administration if someone close to you has died without a Will.

Our large team of Probate solicitors, based around the country, have helped thousands of people manage their loved ones’ estates. We can guide you through Probate as quickly and easily as possible, supporting you in your role as executor and making sure that the deceased’s estate is handled as they wished.

We work closely with in-house tax, property and family law experts to give comprehensive advice on all legal issues that can arise during Probate. We also have extensive experience advising on international wealth management, trusts, and high value property transactions.

Your case will be handled by our team of experts. Our legally-qualified team of senior associates, associates and solicitors are supervised by a Partner, and supported by expert paralegals and legal assistants with 5 to 15 years of experience.
