BOYNECLARKE's Wills, Estates and Trusts Team provides tax-driven planning and a range of services for both private and commercial clients. We are also experienced in disputes that may arise in connection with wills, estates and trusts. We involve practitioners from the (Personal) Litigation Team, when required.

We assist clients ranging from newlyweds who are having their first will drawn up, to wealthy individuals for whom we may provide a variety of services including personal planning, meeting with their accountant to ensure maximum tax savings, drawing up a will, and establishing family trusts.

Our approach to estate planning is to ensure that we understand all of the variables that may affect your estate planning, including assets, liabilities, family structure, and family members not included in the estate. This thorough approach ensures that we have all of the information we need to appropriately advise you.

In setting up trusts, the Wills, Estates and Trusts Team consults with in-house specialists such as tax, property, and matrimonial lawyers in the Business Law, Taxation, Residential Real Estate, and Family Law Teams. In this way, the BOYNECLARKE “family approach” provides efficient, comprehensive service.
