Wills and Estate Planning

Your Will is the document that will specify who benefits from the assets of your estate after your death. It is therefore a key document which can protect your family from avoidable financial pressures during bereavement and expensive litigation.

Here at The Head Partnership we have many years’ experience of creating such documents, advising on complex family situations and intricate financial arrangements. We aim to create a Will which will not leave a dispute as your legacy.

View our video interview with Catherine Whitaker, Head of the Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning Department on the important considerations you need to be aware of when either making or amending a Will:

We can prepare simple Wills where appropriate, but also regularly advise clients on asset protection within Wills, whether because of a vulnerable beneficiary or because inheritance tax planning is required.

We can prepare trusts for disabled beneficiaries and also for business property assets, and we include advice pertaining to inheritance tax and capital gains tax as part of the standard scope of our work.

Our focus is on quality work, where we take the time to understand your requirements and priorities, and we produce bespoke documents ideally suited to your circumstances.
