Even with the best training and equipment available, serving in the armed forces means exposure to risks most other people will never encounter. So it’s vitally important to make sure your affairs are in good order, and that you and your family are clear about your wishes if something happens to you.
Where there’s a will, there’s an easier way forward
The best way to make sure your wishes are respected and carried out is with a will. If you die intestate (in other words, not having made a will) or your will is poorly drafted, then your wealth and possessions may not go to the people you want them to. Sadly, many bereaved families struggle, as a simple military will very often isn’t detailed enough.
The right expertise at your service
Our team is specially qualified to draft wills. It could be a simple, clear-cut will between a husband and wife, or a more complex, tailored will covering estate planning, trusts and tax advice. Either way, you’ll find our advice clear, straightforward and in plain English (we hate unnecessary jargon). Our services include:
- Wills (including more complex situations such as discretionary trust wills and life interest wills)
- Lasting powers of attorney
- Creating and administering Trusts
- Inheritance tax advice and wealth preservation
The lasting power of peace of mind
A lasting power of attorney gives someone you trust the power to act on your behalf if you can’t look after your own affairs for any reason. Your appointee can manage your financial matters, while you’re on active service. They can also make decisions about your health and welfare if you have an accident or injury that means you no longer have mental capacity to make decisions yourself.

We specialise in general asset management, including wealth preservation and estate planning. Plus, we also offer expertise in probate and estate administration to your loved ones after your death.
