Probate and estate administration

Probate and estate administration

Administration of estates

When someone dies, dealing with their estate can seem a daunting task. We have extensive experience in dealing with the legal and practical aspects of administering estates of all sizes and every degree of complexity, and in doing so sympathetically at what will always be a difficult time for those directly affected.

As a matter of course we advise how best to maximise tax reliefs during the period of administration of the estate, for example claiming business and agricultural property relief on landed estates, conditional exemption on a work of art or loss relief where assets have fallen in value since the date of death.

Variation of wills/intestacy

In certain circumstances it may be possible to vary the terms of a deceased’s Will to pass on assets to the next generation. It may also be possible to vary the intestacy provisions if the deceased left no Will. We can advise on all aspects of such variations.

Probate disputes

We are always alert to the possibility of disputes arising and advise on the best approach to achieve the desired outcome, whether by sensitive negotiation, formal mediation or, where necessary, through the Courts.

Overseas interests

We frequently advise clients with an overseas dimension and have a network of overseas professionals with whom we work on multi-jurisdictional issues.
