Protecting your assets Dying without a will could create a raft of problems for those left behind. Many assume that their estate will automatically go to their closest family, but if you die ‘intestate’ (without a will), that may not necessarily be the case. Your heirs may not receive what you wish to pass onto them, or your assets could be reduced through inheritance tax. Planning ahead during your lifetime means that you can ensure that your estate is distributed properly. Our trust solicitors can also advise you on the best way to preserve your family’s wealth by making cash gifts during your lifetime, for example, or protecting assets in trusts. For those who are not married, we can also help with advice to ensure that your partner receives your legacy and is not subject to challenges to probate after you’ve gone. Two of our solicitors are members of the Court of Protection's panel of professional deputies, giving us specialist expertise where clients are unable to make decisions for themselves. We also have significant experience advising on issues that affect the elderly and individuals with a disability, as well as those caring for them.
