Wills, Inheritance Tax Planning, Trusts and Probate

Exceptional legal advice on all aspects of wills, inheritance tax planning, estate administration and probate

Wills, inheritance tax planning and estate administration are among the most personal and sensitive of all legal matters. Our priority is to help you preserve your wealth for the benefit of future generations.

Our private client team is accredited by the Law Society’s Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme (WIQS) and is renowned across the South East of England and beyond.

We specialise in advising on high-value estates and inheritance tax, serving a diverse clientele including affluent individuals, landed families and business owners throughout Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, London and further afield.

Our comprehensive advice encompasses the full range of estate planning and probate services including succession planning, tax planning and asset protection. Several of our solicitors are members of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP), the leading professional body. We can also assist with preparing lasting powers of attorney, administering trusts and handling estate disputes.

With a significant combined expertise in this specialised field, our dedicated team is led by five highly respected Partners who personally oversee the advice we give you. However, a broad team structure allows us to provide tailored legal advice at the appropriate level. Our probate costs are transparent and based on the needs of each case.

We consistently earn top-tier rankings in prestigious independent directories such as Legal 500 and Chambers UK for our exceptional personal legal advice, and we are proud to retain the personal touch. From our offices in St Albans, Harpenden and Luton, we combine the attentive and proactive multi-generational approach of a major City legal firm with the warm accessibility of a family practice.

Whatever your personal circumstances, our private client team will guide you through your wealth and estate planning options. We are more than happy to share the details of how we calculate the cost of probate and provide examples of experience relevant to your situation. Please get in touch for a confidential discussion in the first instance.
