We advise clients to get their affairs in order as early as possible to ensure that their loved ones are provided for and to avoid difficulties and disputes arising. Following the loss of a loved one, we can ease the burden of dealing with their affairs whether or not they have left a Will.
We provide a comprehensive service.

- Winding up of estates (whether testate or intestate)

We also recommend that clients should consider having a Power of Attorney drawn up. A Power of Attorney allows a third party, such as a close relative or friend, to deal with your affairs in the event that you wish them to do so or in the event that you become physically or mentally incapable of doing so yourself. A Continuing Power of Attorney allows the nominated attorney to deal with your financial affairs at any time including when you are no longer able to do so. The Power of Attorney can incorporate both the Continuing Powers and also a Welfare Power of Attorney which allows your attorney to manage other non financial matters for you, such as medical issues if you fall ill or become incapable of dealing with your own affairs. Our experiences in a number of recent cases have shown that a Power of Attorney is crucial for those who own a company or otherwise have self employed business interests.
