Asset Preservation

Many of our clients want to ensure that the assets that they have worked so hard to build up over their lifetime, are preserved to be passed down to their loved ones or the next generation.

Our expert team can advise you on the legitimate steps that you can take to preserve as much as possible for your loved ones.

We can advise you on all the possible options to preserve your assets in the event that you may need long-term care by carefully drafted wills, and guiding you through the complex pitfalls of the rules on ‘deliberate deprivation of assets’.

We can give practical advice on:

  • protecting assets in the event of remarriages or relationship breakdown
  • protection of pension and life policy lump sum death benefits

Our caring and friendly approach builds two-way trust, while our knack for putting technical legal language into plain English ensures our clients fully understand the issues and consequences of different courses of action.
