Personal Tax, Trusts & Probate

To guide you in your planning, to bring you reassurance and to help you during those times when you need help the most: in all we do at Slade Legal, we are fully committed to taking care of your individual needs courtesy of comprehensive, expert support.

To plan, to protect and to support

Slade Legal is a firm that makes a point of forging long term relationships. Once we get to know you, we can provide the tailored advice that is so important. Our experts are on hand to assist with a range of services, including:

Administration and Estate Planning
We are here to relieve any feelings of uncertainty after the passing of a loved one, to help you gain a sense of control and to support you with a flexible approach. Our estate planning experts will assist anyone seeking to minimise the impact of tax and protect assets.

We can help if you need to obtain a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration. We will also take care of dealing with assets and liabilities as well as more specialist issues such as varying a will and redirecting gifts, which may be beneficial for tax purposes.

Inheritance and Trust Disputes
If you are in a situation where you need to bring or defend a claim over a will, trust or Probate, you can rely on our specialist knowledge and expertise to direct the grievances to a swift and satisfactory conclusion.

Tax Planning and Asset Protection
Whether you are looking to plan for a secure retirement, protect your assets, maximise their value or minimise the impact of tax, Slade Legal offers proven expertise that you can rely on for complete peace of mind.

Trusts can be beneficial in many ways and with the right advice and careful financial planning from the specialists at Slade Legal, they can be used to help you retain control over your assets, minimise the impact of tax and provide financial security.

Lasting Powers of Attorney
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) allows you to decide who will take care of your property and financial affairs and personal health and welfare in the event that you become unable to do so yourself.

Mental Capacity and the Court of Protection
Our expertise in the area of mental capacity and the Court of Protection is highly regarded. If you need to make an application to the Court, we can assist with every aspect, from guiding you through the initial stages to helping you administer the patient’s affairs.

Deputyship Applications

A Deputyship application is the next step if a loved one has become unable to manage their own affairs and there is no Lasting Power of Attorney. If you are concerned about becoming a Deputy you can count on us for practical guidance, and if there is no one available within the family, our experienced solicitors can take on the role.
