Wills & Trusts
At Brown & Co Solicitors in Greenwich we help individuals and families throughout London meet the big challenges of life head- on. Nothing is more sensitive or personal than your will — expressing how you want your assets (estate) to be divided after you die.
Our solicitors have particular experience of working closely with clients who, due to age or ill health are particularly vulnerable and in need of careful and considered advice. But we advise all our clients — of whatever age — to consider making a will. If the unexpected happens, a clearly drafted will reduces the anxiety and uncertainty felt by family members and loved ones: It provides real peace of mind.
We encourage clients to come and meet us personally so that we can discuss their wishes in detail. However if you are unable to travel or are in hospital we are happy to come to you. We aim to provide a service that is speedy, efficient and cost-effective. We can carry out the following:
- Wills — We offer fixed fee wills and a reduced rate for couples who wish to prepare “mirror wills”. In addition to ascertaining your wishes we can advise you on some of the ways you can reduce liability to inheritance tax through trusts and lifetime gifts.
- Trusts — We work with a number of charitable trusts as well as manage a number of beneficiary trusts. Our experience in this area means we are able to offer a streamlined service, ensuring beneficiaries are paid, the aims of the trusts are met and trustees act in the best interest of the trust.
- Estate administration — We offer a cost-effective estate administration service in situations where someone dies with or without a will. We take responsibility for all aspects of the estate, from payment of funeral expenses and other debts to collecting estate assets, preparing accounts for the Inland Revenue and distributing assets in accordance with the terms of the will of the laws of intestacy (where someone does without a will).
