Service expertise

Inheritance Tax & Succession Planning

Inheritance Tax, a duty paid on your property and belongings after death, can take a sizable portion out of the gift you wish to pass on. With expert planning, you can significantly reduce this impact. Based in York and Lincoln and helping clients across the UK, our friendly team of solicitors offer expert inheritance tax planning advice, helping you plan your estate, making it as tax efficient as possible to maximise the benefit of your financial legacy.

Lasting Powers of Attorney

A Lasting Power of Attorney is an extremely important document. It allows you to choose someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf, should you lack mental capacity in the future to make those decisions yourself.  They are vitally important documents that will give you and your family confidence at what will often be a very difficult time.

Private Clients

Trusts

Setting up a trust can be a flexible and tax effective way to provide for your loved ones. If you want to set up a trust or want more information on trust law, our solicitors are here to assist you with your questions.

Wills & Probate

Perhaps, because it involves a subject, we least like to think about, many of us never get around to making a Will, despite it being one of the most important documents you could ever need.
