Probate & Estate Administration

We deal with all aspects of family relationships whether you need advice on divorce, matrimonial financial settlements, children, cohabitee disputes or a bespoke pre-nuptial agreement, we can help.

What we can do for you

We advise business owners, property investors and high net worth individuals. We work with the most complex estates involving trusts and business assets, including assets situated in other jurisdictions, through to relatively straightforward estates where even though substantial assets may be involved, the terms of the Will are relatively straightforward.


When a loved one has passed away, obtaining the probate can be a daunting exercise. We frequently act as executors of estates but can also advise executors in respect of their obligations and duties on probate matters. We can assist with ascertaining the full extent of assets and liabilities of an estate and complete the required inheritance tax reporting forms in order to obtain the Grant of Probate. We can then proceed to advise with the estate administration.


If you are in the process of obtaining the Grant of Probate or administering the estate and there are indications of contentious issues or matters have become contentious, we can advise at whatever stage in the proceedings you have reached.
