Wills, Trusts and Probate Solicitors
If you do not have a will or you do not keep it up to date, countless problems can arise for those you leave behind. Your assets may be eroded through tax or your heirs may not actually receive what you wish to pass onto them.
Proper planning in your lifetime can help you resolve the difficulties of how to pass on the family home/business and other assets, whilst preserving your family's wealth. You may also need specialist advice where foreign assets and domicile are concerned and in providing for disabled relatives and second families. IBB's expert wills and probate solicitors can guide you through the complex issues which need to be addressed.

The Legal 500 in 2012 says:
"IBB (Iliffes Booth Bennett)’s ‘totally professional’ private client practice has strength in estate administration and Court of Protection matters. In 2011 it acquired several smaller firms in the Buckinghamshire area. Jacqueline Almond is recommended.”
Chambers in 2011 says:
"This Chesham firm advises on a range of private client matters, including complex probates, will drafting, and tax, trust and financial planning. The firm has a particularly good name in Court of Protection proceedings, and gets referrals from local authorities and law firms lacking that capability."
