Wills and Estates
Everyone needs an up-to-date will to ensure their estate is distributed according to their intentions upon death and that their legacy is the one they wish to leave. A well-drafted will can also help to ensure there is no dispute between beneficiaries.
Moreover, a will is necessary to remove the direct role the state plays in the distribution of assets for those who die without a will, which could have serious and unforeseen financial and other consequences for survivors. For example, a widow or widower still caring for young children might find themselves facing financial hardship as they will not necessarily be entitled to the entire estate.
Douglas Adams has the experience to guide you in your legacy and estate planning, to clearly identify potential pitfalls and to draw up a will tailored to your intentions.
