Wills & Succession Planning

“Expert advice in planning your estate.”

Preparing your will and estate planning pays dividends in the long-run. Not only does it provide you with the peace of mind to know your assets will be distributed as you wish when you pass, but it also helps avoid unnecessary heartache and legal worries for your nearest and dearest.

At Poe Kiely Hogan Lanigan Solicitors we cannot stress enough the importance of putting your affairs in order before the unthinkable happens. Our legal team is experienced in advising individuals and their families, business partners and trustees on their legal options.

We carefully take clients through each stage of planning their estate and the practicalities that must be decided upon, including the care of children, creation of trusts, division of assets and personal property and the assurance today that their wishes will be enacted in the future. Following a person’s death, we will advise on all elements of administration of their estate to ensure that matters are processed quickly and efficiently.

Putting a will in place whilst you are sound of mind is the sensible thing to do so that you and those closest to you are fully aware of your wishes in relation to your estate and assets. Failing to put a will in place can lead to time-consuming legal repercussions and cause a lot of worry and distress for those whom you leave behind.

Power of Attorney

Should you be concerned that you may become incapacitated and not of sound mind, either through an unfortunate accident or illness, we can establish an Enduring Power of Attorney to ensure your legal and financial affairs are conducted in your best interests and under the control of a person of your choosing.

We provide specialist legal advice on the following areas:

  • Making a will
  • Estate & Succession Planning
  • Applications for all forms of Grant of Representation to include Probate & Intestate
  • Power of Attorney & Enduring Power of Attorney
  • Ward of Court Applications
  • Trust Formation & Administration
  • Taxation Advice
  • Contesting a will
