Coping with bereavement

Have you lost a loved one?

Bereavement is often unexpected or sudden. In addition to coping with grief family and friends can be faced with the complexities of registering the death, arranging the funeral, seeking legal advice and dealing with tax issues and ensuring distribution of the deceased's estate in accordance with his or her wishes. 

We have experience in dealing with estates both large and small. We have a tax team who deal with HMRC on a daily basis and know the available reliefs and exemptions.

We are experts and will ensure that the Executors will meet all the responsibilities.

We can help

We have an experienced team who can assist at any or all of these matters.

It isn’t just our legal expertise that will make the difference. We will balance that with compassionate support and understanding during what is a difficult and stressful time.

We can also deal with estates which have an English or other foreign dimension.
