At Blacks we specialise in providing a friendly and cost effective private client service to individuals and business owners.
We provide directors and shareholders with bespoke advice on how to pass on their business interests to their loved ones under the terms of their Wills. We are able to do this in the most inheritance tax efficient manner possible.
Also, we often advise directors regarding Lasting Powers of Attorney. Failure to make a business Lasting Power of Attorney can have a serious detrimental impact on the business so it is critical directors understand the importance of having a Lasting Power of Attorney in place. We can provide expert guidance and advice on how to correctly draft a business Lasting Power of Attorney to suit both the needs of the client and the company as well.
Blacks’ Private Client Team is a very friendly, well established and experienced Team offering the full range of private client services.
