Both are long-standing members of staff who provide outstanding levels of service to their clients for whom they are always willing to “go the extra mile”!

Charles promotion

We are sure that the team will go from strength to strength under his leadership. Charles is pictured with Sarah Warren, Head of Property and Joanne Butler, Operations Partner.

Will Writing

19 Aug: The fundamentals of wills: Revocation

Our partner Michael looks at what makes a will and how they work, starting with revocation. Michael specialises in wills and inheritance disputes which means he is well position to explain this area and consider what happen when things go wrong.
The execution of a will, in most circumstances, revokes an earlier one.

A revocation clause, usually found at the start of a will, ensures there can be no doubt that the testator wanted their new will to replace an earlier one.
