Uncomfortable as it may be, writing a Will is crucial to protecting your interests in the face of uncertainty

No matter the size of your estate, communicating clear instructions as to how it should be divided and who should benefit is vital if your wishes are to be respected.

Unfortunately, Will writing is a path paved with pitfalls – rush to complete and you could make a critical mistake.  At 360 Business Law, we regularly advise our corporate and commercial clients on the best method of protecting their business assets should the worst happen.

Our Wills lawyers adopt a sensitive but specialist approach to help you get your affairs in order. Whether your situation is simple and straightforward or complicated with multiple elements to consider, you can count on our team to steer you in the right direction. Should you wish to amend your Will, we’ll be on hand to help and provide the peace of mind that your interests are protected no matter what comes your way.

As a virtual law firm, we understand that face-to-face meetings aren’t always possible or practical. From September 2020 onwards, should you be unable to make an appointment in person, we can arrange for your Will to be signed remotely via our cutting-edge V-Sign system.

Expertise

Will Writing

Despite the number of templates that exist online, Will writing is not a process that should be expedited for the sake of saving time. One tiny error can lead to a great deal of risk, which is why our dedicated team are on hand to help. As well as drafting the Will itself and storing it for security, we will provide advice bespoke to your situation to ensure you make the right decisions on critical issues regarding the future of your estate.

Business Trusts

Business trusts can play a leading role in succession planning; they ensure the smooth transfer of your company between generations, providing clarity and removing the risk of business debts falling on your family members. Our lawyers regularly advise on the establishment and management of business trusts to ensure beneficiaries profit from the trust as intended.

Lasting Powers of Attorney

Powers of attorney can be granted legally to another individual on your behalf if you are no longer able to make decisions concerning your business interests. Taking action to set up a Lasting Power of Attorney will allow you to appoint someone you trust with your business to manage your affairs, whether this be for a temporary period while you are absent from the business or as a long-term measure if you are no longer capable of acting on your own behalf. For specialist advice on setting up an LPA, get in touch with our expert team today.

Probate Services

Estate administration can quickly evolve into a legal headache without the right advice. For such a sensitive issue that has high potential for disputes, it’s best to seek support from lawyers you can rely on to guide you through the process with minimal fuss. If you have been appointed as the executor of a Will and need assistance in the process, we can do this through our regulated practice 360 Law Services.
