Wills & Estate Planning

A Will is a legal document which comes into effect at the time of your death. It includes details of who should look after your estate and carry out your wishes, and who will benefit from your wealth.

Our team of specialist Wills lawyers provide advice on how to protect and manage your wealth, for now, and the future.

The starting point for any solution often includes a well-drafted Will and where necessary, the creation of bespoke trusts.

You’ll also be able to call on our experience in tax planning where we can help manage your exposure to taxes such as capital gains and inheritance tax.


Our Experience – Wills & Estate Planning

We know how important it is for you to get specialist legal advice when looking at how you can plan and prepare for the future.

You can be confident that our team will go above and beyond to help you. That’s backed up by many of our team being accredited members of STEP (Society of Trust & Estate Practitioner), the kitemark qualification for private client lawyers.

Through our work with a number of local charities, we have regular contact with, and know the issues faced by, some of the most vulnerable and elderly members of our community.

"Actons did a great job with my wife and I wills which were quite complex, (example) "if this happens or that happens" had to be put in a legal way (plus all the charities) alot! Checked and verified. Lauren did a sterling job."
