What We Do

Sometimes it is necessary during a person's life to protect their assets from third party claims such as second marriage syndrome, loss of capacity, claims under the Inheritance Act, IHT, and other factors (including care home fees).

  • Advice

    We'll advise you on whether an Asset Protection Trust is the right thing for you.

  • Documents

    We'll draft the trust deed and help you execute it correctly so it is fully effective.

  • Transfer

    We'll transfer into the trust whatever assets it was that you wanted to protect.

Asset Protection Trusts (APTs) are complex and great care must be taken from both a legal and a tax perspective.

If there is a better or simpler way of achieving the protection you seek, we will tell you.
