Private Wealth & Estates

Providing tailored and specialist legal advice for individuals and their families on every aspect of wealth and estate planning.

We are longstanding advisers to a wide range of individuals and their families helping them to manage often complex estates and businesses interests so that wealth is protected today and for future generations.

Many of our clients are longstanding clients of the firm and families that we have advised across generations. They instruct us because we can draw on a wide range of experience and specialist expertise to support, from succession planning in a family business to tax & estate planning, and from advising on complex domicile issues to dealing with assets held overseas. 

We are one of the largest private client teams in the South West, and through our London office and membership of leading international law firm network ADVOC, we can support clients across the UK with all their wealth & estate planning needs.

"The team at Ashfords is, literally, the whole package. They cover everything from day-to-day will writing to complex trusts and estates and a litigation team, should the unfortunate need arise."
