Our aim is to support clients through a difficult period, by taking responsibility for the administration side of the estate when they lose a loved one.  We know this is a challenging period for anyone to go through, and are sensitive to the individual situation.  We aim to keep our clients advised throughout the process.  We are always available if they should have any problems.

As a business owner, you will receive all of the services mentioned above.  As an added benefit, we provide business owners with advice on business succession plans when doing their Wills and we have a special business questionnaire that they complete at the time.

We discuss important areas pertaining to your business:

That is who can manage your business if something happens to you, any potential purchasers of your business, how your bank account will continue operating; and we will be providing an additional service to our business owners if you require a consultation with regard to drawing up a Plan B for your business.  In our experience, it is important to have a plan of action in place.

We would be happy to meet with you to discuss a mutually beneficial working relationship.  For more information, see the advertisement.
