Probate & trust management

“Very responsive, pragmatic and efficient.  A good old fashioned private client service.”

Leading multi-family office

We advise on the management and administration of estates and trusts.

At a time of bereavement, you can rely on our lawyers’ compassion and sensitivity.  If you wish, you can instruct us to act in an administrative capacity for trustees and executors.  We can advise beneficiaries on ways they might be able to mitigate inheritance tax through the use of past death variations of Wills.

We have been assisting our clients in this area since the firm was established in the 1950s.

It is a matter of public record that we have acted in relation to the following high profile estates: Laurence Olivier, Vivien Leigh, Sir Anthony & Lady Quayle, Sir Dirk Bogarde, Michael Powell, Sir Stanley Baker, Dame Margot Fonteyn, Dorothy Sayers, Dame Agatha Christie, Graham Greene and Dylan Thomas.
