Specialist Wills Solicitors
Experts in Will preparation
Blake Morgan has a team of specialist Wills solicitors. We can ensure that your Will reflects your wishes for your estate and that your family and other chosen beneficiaries are taken care of.
Our solicitors take account of your current circumstances, help you to consider the future needs of your family and can also help to protect your estate if the unexpected occurs. We can provide advice on options to consider, as well as potentially identifying and recommending tax mitigation and asset protection opportunities to reduce inheritance tax or exposure to care home fees.
Main Areas Of Practice
Whether you are making your first Will or updating an existing Will, our expert Wills solicitors can help. We offer advice and prepare Wills for UK- and non-UK domiciled individuals, with each Will tailor-made to your personal circumstances. Whatever your life stage and level of wealth, making a Will ensures you have appointed executors to deal with your affairs and allows you to choose who will benefit from your estate. Our expert solicitors will prepare a bespoke Will that reflects your wishes and will highlight wealth preservation opportunities.
Marriage, civil partnership and divorce
Our expert solicitors advise on the effect of marriage and civil partnership on your Will, and can prepare Wills ahead of the event to ensure peace of mind. Following separation or divorce, particularly where there are jointly-owned assets or ongoing financial obligations, we can also advise on changes that may be necessary to your Will.
Providing for children and vulnerable beneficiaries
Although no one likes to think about dying while their children are minors, or if disabled or vulnerable beneficiaries rely on your support, your Will allows you to make the necessary provisions. Our experts advise on the appointment of guardians and the use of trusts to provide comfort they will be well looked after.
Entrepreneurs and business owners
We provide expert Wills advice to business owners, tailored to the life stage of your business and to your individual shareholding. We believe that a carefully-drafted Will is key to your business succession planning and can also be an effective way of passing your business wealth down to future generations.
Foreign assets and domicile
Whether you are a UK national with assets abroad or an international individual with assets in the UK, we can advise on the succession of these assets and prepare a Will that reflects the international nature of your estate. Our specialists also advise on domicile and the related tax considerations.
Our Wills experts act for private individuals wishing to make a Will or update an existing Will. We advise those with assets located in the UK and/or abroad, and offer specialist advice to business owners. Our Court of Protection team acts for vulnerable persons and can advise on statutory Wills for those who have lost capacity.
