Solicitors for the Elderly

Later life and retiring after years of working should be fun – now might be the time to do some of the things you always dreamed of doing. Our Private Wealth Lawyers can help you arrange your affairs and plan effectively for the fun years.

It does remain a fact that as we get older and despite our best efforts we do actually become frailer and there is a tendency for our memory and mental agility to gradually declined.  Whilst one may not wish to think about the later stages of life, the fact remains that planning in advance is always far better than putting everything off, as there’s always a danger that if you put things off you will in fact miss the boat.

We have specialist SFE Accredited Members for advising older and vulnerable clients on legal needs. Anthony Tahourdin and Minnaar Badenhorst are accredited members.

In order to plan ahead our specialist team of Private Wealth Lawyers can help you with make sure you have everything nicely planned in advance:

> Asset Protection

> Care Fees and Funding

> Court of Protection

> Probate

> Powers of Attorney

> Inheritance Tax Planning

> Trusts

> Wills
