    We have specialisms in creating Wills that have certain complexities such as for those with private wealth including multiple dwellings and business interests, succession planning for farming families, minimising tax liabilities for you and your family with our tax planning advice and Wills and tax planning for those with property or assets overseas.

    We can help protect the people and the things you care about. A Will is an investment in your family’s future.

    Appoint a professional executor

    When somebody passes away, their estate needs to be administered so that their assets can be sold and liabilities paid off. For those with a valid Will, the executor will be the person dealing with this estate administration process.

    Brachers’ Trust Corporation is a company set up by the firm to act as a professional executor, trustee, deputy in the Court of Protection and attorney on relevant matters. The company can act if you are unsure on who to appoint as your executor, if you are concerned about a potential dispute amongst relatives, or if you do not want to burden your family with dealing with your estate. Brachers Trust Corporation is independent and can ensure that your wishes and instructions are followed precisely.

    With offices in both Maidstone and Canterbury, our team are ready to help with any legal advice you may require.
