CIVIL LITIGATION

Disputes are inevitable in life. If you are unable to resolve your dispute amicably then it is crucial to get the RIGHT advice as early as possible. Litigation matters require meticulous examination of every issue involved as, should your claim fail, you carry the great risk of having to pay your opponent’s legal costs. It is often a more appropriate option to resolve matters through mediation or arbitration which are usually less costly and time consuming than litigation. We will never shy away from protecting your interests. We possess the requisite experience and expertise in negotiating on your behalf and if necessary, issuing/defending proceedings at the High Court or County Court. Call us today for a FREE consultation on any of the areas below;

WILLS & TRUSTS

 

Death is an inevitable part of life and perhaps the only guaranteed part, yet only one in three of us ever make a Will. Planning what will happen to your estate in the event of your death is vital.

If someone dies without a Will, their relatives will have no say over who gets what and when. Some jointly held assets may automatically pass to the co-owner and the Statutory Intestacy Rules will divide what is left among other relatives. You may end up giving more to the government in taxes than you need to; so who would you rather inherit? your family or the Government?

More importantly, if you have children, and die without a Will, there will be no control over who will bring up your children, who will look after their money until they become old enough or when "old enough" will be.

Setting up a Trust within your Will or even beforehand is a sensible way to protect assets or ring fence funds for beneficiaries who may require ongoing support before or after you die. The most tax efficient and effective solutions require you to take action well before your death, so don't leave it too late. Contact us today to discuss for a free confidential consultation.
