The will solicitors at Barker Gotelee are highly respected for providing expert advice in relation to Wills, estate planning and asset protection. We take a proactive approach and by discussing your circumstances and listening to your wishes and concerns, we can establish the most appropriate and tax-efficient succession plan for you and/or your business.
At its most basic, a Will is about peace of mind – your only chance to ensure that the right assets pass to the correct beneficiaries. For this reason, our will solicitors always review your estate to identify tax-planning opportunities and propose solutions to possible complications.
Many of our clients are the third or even fourth generation of their family for whom we have acted, and value our personal knowledge of their history in preserving the family wealth for future generations.
Trusts have always been and remain an important tool within succession planning and many clients ask our will solicitors to act as trustees of family trusts. Trusts have been established for different purposes over the years and the tax treatment varies accordingly. It is only through the expertise, experience and dedication of our solicitors, that we can advise clients and trustees on the creation, administration, taxation and, where appropriate, winding up of trusts.
Three of our will solicitors are fully qualified members of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP). Our client feedback indicates that our clients particularly value our ability to explain matters clearly and recommend solutions.
We offer comprehensive yet cost effective services. Therefore our will solicitors provide fixed fees wherever possible.
While based in Martlesham Heath, Ipswich, we also offer home visits for those clients, across Suffolk and East Anglia, who are unable to come into the office.
