Weightmans' wealth of experience covers wills, trusts, tax planning, probate and administration of estates, powers of attorney, trust and estate disputes and deputyships. Commenting on its success, a spokesperson for the firm said:
"We understand the importance of careful estate planning to help provide for future generations. Our services include lifetime and post-death planning, helping individuals and families."
The business prides itself on preparing wills that are suited to the specific needs of its clients, whether drafting one from scratch or making changes to one that is already in place. One of the most common types of work a wills and probate solicitor may deal with is when it comes to reviewing a will, which they say more people need to do.
"Wills should be reviewed following a change in circumstances, such as getting married or divorced, buying a house, becoming a parent or having children from a previous relationship. In some cases, wills can become null and void, while others risk their estate not ending up where they would want it to go in the event of their death," Weightmans spokesperson said.
One common misconception about wills, which Weightmans is keen to clear up, is that they're only about money and other assets. In reality, wills can cover everything from funeral arrangements to nominating guardians for young children.
In addition to wills and probate law, Weightmans has experience in many other areas of law including family law, property law, commercial law, insurance and public sector.
