Our Private Client lawyers take pride in offering the very highest levels of service and support combined with a personal and friendly approach, all aimed at helping our aiming our clients preserve and manage their wealth for their own benefit and for that of future generations. We are chosen to act for individuals, families, estates, trusts, and family businesses based in the UK and overseas or those that have overseas interests.

While our team regularly offers advice on Elderly Care, Powers of Attorney, Wills, Probate administration, Trusts and tax matters, we also call on expertise from other teams within the firm to provide a wide-ranging service to clients on all aspects of their affairs.

In addition, we liaise and work closely with other professional advisers, including accountants, bankers, land agents, investment managers and financial advisers, to provide a comprehensive and seamless service to a diverse range of individuals. While proactive, pragmatic advice is essential in this area, our team is also proud of how they balance discretion and sensitivity with commercial awareness.

Many lawyers within the department are members of the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners (STEP), the Law Society Probate Section and Solicitors for the Elderly.
