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.
Three of our wills solicitors are members of the Court of Protection's panel of professional deputies. We have niche expertise on applications to the Court of Protection and significant experience advising on issues affecting the elderly and individuals with a disability as well and those caring for them.
We can help you with:
- Wills, trusts and probate
- Tax and estate planning
- Lasting Powers of Attorney
- Court of Protection
- Trust administration
- Probate dispute service
- Civil partnerships

"IBB (Iliffes Booth Bennett) demonstrates a 'high standard of professionalism', and advises on a number of high-net-worth estates. Jacqueline Almond is 'approachable and knowledgeable'."
Chambers in 2014 says:
"High net worth private clients form a significant part of the client base for IBB’s private practice. Services including wills, probate, tax, trusts, estate planning, property and financial advice for individuals. Work is also undertaken for institutional clients. The team is particularly strong in its Court of Protection work with a partner and a senior solicitor appointed as panel deputies. Two solicitors are members of STEP. Other related teams with whom there is a close working relationship provide charities advice, criminal defence, family law advice including children’s cases, employment and personal injury."
