Private Client Law

Put the right plans in place for you and your family, with help from our specialist Private Client Law department.

It’s never too early to plan for the future, but you never know when it might be too late. It isn’t a pleasant thought, but organising your personal affairs is really important. At Brockbanks, our private client solicitors are here to help you set out your wishes in a legally binding manner.

We are here to ensure that you have a strategy in place for every eventuality. From providing for friends and family members during your lifetime and beyond, to protecting your assets from care home fees, we are here to help. We can also set out your final wishes in a Will, ensuring that your chosen loved ones benefit exactly as you want them to.

We understand that if you have lost someone close to you, managing their affairs must be conducted with tact and empathy. Our Private client lawyers offer a range of services for private individuals including Will writing, obtaining a grant of probate, administering an estate, and assisting in the preparation of Lasting Powers of Attorney.
