For Private Clients
Secure the future of your loved ones with our expert legal services. Our dedicated Private Client team specialises in a wide range of services, including drafting Wills, Powers of Attorney, guardianships, and other legal documents. We also handle the administration of executry estates and can assist you in setting up companies or trusts in the UK.
POWERS OF ATTORNEY
A Power of Attorney is a legal document that grants authority to one or more individuals to handle your personal, financial, and welfare matters in your stead. It can greatly simplify matters if you’re unable to manage these affairs yourself. We recommend all our clients, regardless of age, to consider having a Power of Attorney in place for future peace of mind. This appointment does not relinquish your authority over your own affairs; rather, it ensures that someone else is authorized to act on your behalf in financial or welfare matters should the need arise due to accident, illness, or travel. Powers of Attorney can be tailored broadly to cover all aspects of your business or limited to specific purposes like property sales. Drawing on our extensive experience working with families and individuals, our solicitors will guide you through the options, creating a customized arrangement that addresses your unique needs.

MAKE A WILL AND PROTECT YOUR LEGACY
Creating a Will is crucial for ensuring that your most personal possessions and hard-earned savings are distributed according to your wishes. It is a simple and affordable process that can save your loved ones from unnecessary tax burdens and legal complications. Without a Will, your estate could be subject to Scottish law, potentially leaving your loved ones in a difficult situation. This is especially important if you own property.
Our team can help you with various aspects of your Will, including determining who should inherit your assets, how your children should be cared for, appointing responsible Executors, specifying your funeral arrangements, and making charitable donations.
CHOOSE PROFESSIONAL EXPERTISE FOR PEACE OF MIND
While some Wills are straightforward, others may involve complex arrangements and financial matters, such as inheritance tax. That’s why having qualified solicitors handle the drafting process is wise. Although DIY and internet Wills are available, they come with risks as they lack legal advice. We also make it easy to make changes to existing Wills, ensuring they remain legally binding.
TRUST OUR TEAM TO ADMINISTER YOUR ESTATE
We understand that the administration of estates can be overwhelming during an emotional time. That’s why we offer the option to have our solicitors, experienced in acting as Executors, handle the process. If you have family members who would like to act as Executors, we can support and guide them as well.
KEEPING YOUR LOVED ONE’S LEGACY INTACT
If a loved one passes away without a Will, our family law team can assist you in applying to the Sheriff Court to appoint an Executor. Our experienced solicitors will prepare the necessary forms for the court, providing you with expert advice throughout the process.

Quote for a will
A guardianship order grants someone the authority to make ongoing decisions on behalf of an adult who lacks the capability to protect, safeguard, and make decisions regarding their own financial and personal welfare. This order is issued by a sheriff and typically remains in effect for a predetermined period, such as 3 years. An adult refers to an individual who is 16 years or older. However, if needed, a guardianship application can be submitted 3 months prior to a child turning 16 to ensure the order is in effect by their 16th birthday.
A guardianship order can be granted to handle property and financial matters, personal welfare, or a combination. We can provide legal advice if you consider applying to the Sheriff Court for an order.
