“I really feel indebted to you for all your excellent service and opinion and for your patience in dealing with all aspects of this case, especially from a very demanding family. You have showed us all from the very beginning how professional you are and your support during the last very difficult year was of very great value to us”
We can help you safeguard your future in case things don’t go to plan. Protecting your business, your estate and your relationships in case things go wrong; and to help you deal with the inevitable situations in life – such as death, can all be dealt with more easily and with less stress if you give some time to think about what you want ahead of time.
If you are planning to get married, it is much more exciting planning the big day than considering how your legal obligations to each other will change afterwards. However, increasingly, our clients are looking to prepare agreements to give them more certainty about their financial rights and obligations if the marriage breaks down. If you are already married, you may want to consider entering into a post nuptial agreement to regulate the financial terms upon which you will separate.
If you are married or in a relationship and are worried about your spouse or partner disposing or hiding their assets (such as bank accounts) here or abroad, we can assist you in taking legal steps to protect the position pending the final order.
Planning for your old age or helping your family plan for theirs can be dealt with using powers of attorney to protect your wishes. Powers of attorney can also be used to protect your assets should you become incapacitated through illness or injury.
Many of our clients have assets overseas as well as in the UK and through tax and succession planning we can structure personal, business and philanthropic wealth so you feel reassured that your plans are followed and your assets are distributed appropriately.
If you need help and are worried about your assets following a dispute, see our ‘dealing with a disputes’ page.
