When a loved one passes, the handling of the estate can be highly challenging. As leading private client solicitors in London, our team is experienced in administering all types of estate and the many administrative tasks that come with even the simplest of estates, extending as well to large cross-border estates and estates with complex legal issues and/or disputes. We often advise on estates where there is no will or where there may be international or complex issues. We work with the executors and administrators of estates to guide them through the legal process of probate and the issues following a death.
All of the different legal teams in the firm work closely with each other to ensure that our clients have quick and easy access to a wide range of legal support. Private client affairs can often extend into other legal divisions including family law, real estate, corporate and commercial and employment issues. As such, we want to ensure that our clients feel supported at every step of their engagement with us.
Our dispute resolution team is also very experienced in wills and probate cases, particularly inheritance and family provision claims, where there are contentious issues arising out of the administration of the estate; they also advise on contesting wills and claims for financial provisions where the deceased has failed to make such or sufficient provisions.
No matter the specifics of your circumstances, our aim is always to ensure that you feel comfortable and confident in our abilities to provide exceptional personal legal advice on whatever aspects of wills and probate law that is most relevant to your case.
