We understand the challenges facing individuals, families and businesses when they are looking to protect the future of their security and finances.
Our specialist estate planning solicitors work closely with clients to navigate legal and legislative requirements at each stage of the estate and asset planning process. Whether your focus is ensuring the long-term administration of a personal estate, planning the succession of a business or any other legal challenge pertaining to trusts, wills or inheritance, Slater Heelis’ team of lawyers are here to support your primary objectives with expert advice that is only a telephone call away.
We can help you to put together an overall plan for your estate so that once the time comes, all of your assets (money, property and other possessions) are well protected and go exactly where you want them to in a way that is as tax-efficient way as possible for your loved ones. Ideally, asset protection should be in place before a person passes away, but it can be done afterwards if needs be.
For business owners, planning your estate is often more complicated, with various issues unique to each business to consider. Nonetheless, we are here to provide clear and expert advice at every step, and we can help you to review the various exit strategies and family succession options. There may also be various tax relief options available to you and your family.
We know from experience that our clients are often looking to retain as much control and flexibility over their financial affairs as possible, particularly when transferring wealth and assets to one or more parties. By pinpointing the best legal options available to you, our team can help tailor the right legal solution to meet your own individual circumstances. This is the only way to achieve a quick and effective outcome free from any potential difficulties.

Why is estate planning important?
Estate planning can enable your assets to pass on to your loved ones in a tax efficient manner and in a way which can help to preserve their entitlement.
What needs to be included in estate planning?
Estate planning requires a consideration of your personal and financial circumstances.
We can also advise on inheritance tax, trusts and powers of attorney.
When should you start estate planning?
If you are in a relationship or married, cohabiting, have children or own a business, or if you are simply worried about how much inheritance will be payable, you should consider estate planning.
