Making a will

The recent coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis and the social distancing measures reducing contact with family and loved ones has brought into focus the importance of an up-to-date will which makes sure that those nearest to you are looked after in the best possible way.

 

We have adapted the way we work to ensure our clients continue to get the very best advice, whilst following Government advice and working from home.  Our lawyers all have access to video and conference facilities enabling face-to-face contact and are on hand via email and phone to talk you through the process of drafting a will from end to end. When it comes to witnessing your will, our lawyers will work with you to find a safe and secure way of doing this, ensuring we adhere to the social distancing measures currently in place.  

Our specialist private wealth lawyers will get to know you and your specific circumstances and work with you to ensure your wishes are clearly documented and structure your assets in a way that ensures peace of mind for you and your family.

 

If your circumstances are complicated, for example you have assets abroad, we will help you to negotiate any hurdles and propose the most practical structure and tax-efficient path. We will consider all eventualities and help you select your executors and trustees.

  • Advising a client who was unsure exactly when and how he wanted his family to benefit on death. He made a will with a discretionary trust of the residue which gave his executors the flexibility to wait until the client’s death to set up the trusts in line with a letter of wishes from the client.
  • Advising clients on a second marriage and who have children by a first relationship, how to make their will so as to provide financial protection for the new spouse but, at the same time, ensuring that the children are the ultimate beneficiaries.
  • Advising clients who are non-domiciled in the UK and who own property both here and abroad how best to structure their wills. This often involves complex issues covering a number of difference jurisdictions.
