  • making a lasting power of attorney
  • putting in place an advance decision
  • dealing with the administration of a trust or an estate
  • advising on inheritance tax planning.

Our trusts and estates team are highly qualified with years of experience; within the team we have Mencap recommended advisors, members of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and members of Solicitors for the Elderly.
