A strong Wills and Probate team

Thursday, June 11, 2015

Rogers & Norton has a strong Wills and Probate team located in both Norwich and Attleborough and continues to improve and enhance its reputation.  Following the acquisition of Nicholas Daykin Solicitors on 1 December 2014, the department now has three Solicitors, two Fellows of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and a Probate Executive, with a combined total between them of over 100 years’ experience in this field.

There is a strong element of continuity for clients in that several members of staff have been with the practice for in excess of 10 years.

All fee-earners have also been trained to be a Dementia Friend and between them are members of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, Solicitors for the Elderly, Action on Elder Abuse Adult Safeguarding Network and the Law Society’s Private Client Section. Our level of experience remains an important factor in helping to retain the company’s high quality client base in this area of work.

We provide services to clients throughout East Anglia and the UK and have also within recent years extended our services to international clients. The work of the Wills and Probate Team covers the full range of private client work, from simple Wills to complex tax planning strategies and the administration of estates of all sizes.

The Team provides specialist advice for elderly clients, addressing the issues of capacity, estate planning and the potential consequences of lifetime gifts and the procedure for provision of and payment for care at home or elsewhere. We continue to advise on existing Enduring Powers of Attorney and Receivership matters and, following the introduction of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, also advise on Lasting Powers of Attorney, the appointment of Deputies and the management of clients’ affairs by Deputies.

Our skilled and experienced lawyers are determined to deliver the very best in legal advice whilst maintaining a personal and friendly service. With competitive prices and customer focus we look forward to being at your service.
