Our advice could be worth its weight in coffee!

It is always an interesting task in divorce and separation cases when you ask your client to predict their future living expenses, not to mention considering the same from the other side.

Choosing the right executors!

This may seem like a simple step, and you may have always had a very clear idea about who you want to be in charge of your assets, and the distribution of them when you’re not around.

Responsibilities of Executors!

One of our recent big successes has got us thinking about the responsibilities an executor has. In this particular case we were acting for the beneficiary in which we not only removed the executors, but thanks to our efforts they are going to have to pay our costs, and we may also have a negligence […]
