Our experience of making wills

  • 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.
