At Blacks we specialise in providing a friendly and cost effective private client service to individuals and business owners.
We recognise the importance of having all of your private client affairs in order. We help clients with the preparation of Wills to ensure the people whom you want to inherit actually do so. We can also ensure your Will is drafted in the most inheritance tax efficient manner possible and, if appropriate, make sure your Will includes care fee planning so that your assets pass to your chosen beneficiaries.
We also help families by carrying out the full administration of an estate when a loved one passes away. If there is any dispute over a Will on grounds such as incapacity or duress then we are able to assist in resolving the dispute.
Our experienced Team is also able to help with drafting Lasting powers of attorney and applications to the Court of Protection for deputyship orders.
Inheritance tax planning through establishing lifetime trusts is also a valuable service we provide.
Blacks’ Private Client Team is a very friendly, well established and experienced Team offering the full range of private client services.
