In today’s world, we’re living longer, getting married later, if at all and we’re not afraid to divorce if things don’t work out. Our family lives are more diverse, complex and blended – and then span three or four generations.
Choice is a wonderful thing, and successful people running businesses are more empowered than ever before when it comes to managing family life – but does that really make planning our finances, protecting our families and managing our assets easier?
Providing for your family is about making sure the right legal plans and structures are in place as families evolve and grow. Whether you wish to help fund your children’s or grandchildren’s education, help them onto the property ladder, or navigate the shifting sands of social care reforms, the assets you have carefully built up need to be just as carefully looked after and managed.

Blake Morgan's Fees Guides
No two matters are the same – just as clients’ circumstances and desired outcomes will always differ, so will the work that we do and the advice that we provide in pursuit of those outcomes.
We are always as transparent as we can be about our costs upfront to help you understand the options available to you. The links below take you through to our Fees Guides for a number of different services. These provide an indication of the work that we will do for you, who will do that work, how long it will take and, importantly, how much it might cost based on a number of different scenarios. Before starting to work for you, we will always meet or speak with you to understand exactly what’s going to be required and provide a bespoke quotation based on your particular circumstances – we will also provide you with regular updates on costs as the matter progresses as required.
