Probate and Estate Administration

Handling the administration of an estate following the death of a loved one can be complex as well as traumatic, which is why you need the expertise and support of an experienced legal team.

From identifying the deceased’s assets, filling out the Inheritance Tax Return and obtaining the Grant of Probate, to dealing with trusts and paying debts, liabilities and legacies, our team of expert lawyers can help and guide you through the necessary processes and legalities. We can also assist you with the distribution of the estate in accordance of the Will, or if there is no Will, in accordance with the rules of intestacy, and help with the preparation of accounts.

We also offer a full professional executor and trustee service and are often asked by our clients to fulfil those roles, especially where estates may not be straightforward (whether because of business issues or complicated family arrangements).
