We can help you safeguard your future in case things don’t go to plan – protecting your business, your estate and your relationships through all stages in life. It is both sensible and reassuring to make plans for the future, whether it is for yourself or your business enabling situations to be dealt with more easily and with less stress.
If you are planning on getting married, it is essential to consider how your legal obligations to each other will change afterwards. Increasingly, our clients are looking to prepare pre-nuptial or pre-civil partnership agreements to give them more certainty about their financial rights and obligations should their relationship break down. If you are already married, you may want to consider entering into a post-nuptial agreement to regulate the financial terms upon which you will separate.
Preparing for your old age or helping your family plan for theirs can be dealt with using powers of attorney to protect your wishes. Powers of attorney can also be used to protect your assets should you become incapacitated through illness or injury, where their appointed attorney could ensure your financial affairs are in order and take medical decisions on their behalf if necessary.
Many of our clients have assets overseas as well as in the UK and through tax and succession planning, we can structure family and business wealth, so you feel reassured that your plans are followed, and your estate is distributed according to your wishes.
