Bereavement can be an extremely difficult time for friends and family.
When a family member or friend passes away and you find yourself responsible for winding up their financial affairs it can be a daunting task to take on especially at such a distressing time. Our aim is to ensure the administration of the estate is conducted quickly and smoothly in a sensitive and efficient way.
We can guide you through the process and explain how that person’s estate will pass (under the terms of his or her Will or the rules of intestacy) and what steps are needed for probate and tax purposes. We offer our clients fixed fees so that the executors and beneficiaries can be clear from the outset what our fees will be.

We work closely with executors throughout the process of administering an estate to ensure a cost-efficient and streamlined probate process on often high value and complex estates with cross-border issues. Should a claim be brought (or need to be brought) against the estate we would work closely with our litigation team in the conduct of the claim.
