Life, death and taxes. Are all your affairs in order?
The most important legal document you will ever sign. Dying without a Will is similar to leaving the door to your home wide open before going on a very long holiday.
If you are a Muslim and wish for the Shariah to be implemented following your death, our Islamic Will writing service has got you covered. Speak to one of our Muslims experts today and get your Wasiyyah in place before it’s too late.
Lasting Powers of Attorney
Your LPAs sets out who should be allowed to assist you if you lose the ability to make decisions in the future. LPAs have become increasingly more important in recent years, given the increase in cases of strokes, vaccine injuries, brain injuries, dementia, cancer and other severe life-changing illnesses and accidents.
Probate / Estate Administration
Dealing with the affairs of a deceased family member isn’t always easy. We’re here to assist you to the extent you need us. We also offer fixed fee options (where appropriate to do so) to take the pressure off your shoulders and help you get everything over the line in a time and cost efficient manner.
It’s your choice.
Protect and preserve, everything.
Succession planning for a business involves developing a plan for the smooth transfer of ownership and management of the business to a successor when the current owner or a shareholder steps down or retires.
Business Succession is a complex process that requires careful consideration. It is important to work with trusted advisors to develop a comprehensive plan that meets the needs of the business, its shareholders and their loved ones upon death.
Making sure the right people retain control, distinguishing personal assets from business assets and maximizing all available tax reliefs are crucial to preventing significant disruption in the future.
Trusts & Tax
A trust is a legal arrangement set up by a “settlor” who entrusts “a trustee or trustees” to hold and manage assets on behalf of “a beneficiary or beneficiaries”. Trusts can be useful for a variety of purposes, including being built into Wills, lifetime estate planning, asset protection, and tax planning.
The tax implications of a trust can vary depending on the type of trust and the specific circumstances of the trust’s creation and operation. It’s important to work with a professional to ensure that any trust set up is managed to achieve the desired tax benefits.
Our specialists can help map out a bespoke solution to best protect your UK and international wealth. We regularly assist private clients who own assets in multiple jurisdictions to ensure a watertight plan is in place in the event of death or loss of mental capacity.
Our international network has been carefully selected, ensuring shared values and enthusiasm exist, to provide you with an overall bespoke yet cost-effective solution.
We work with minimal fuss and disruption and always set timescales in advance so you know when to expect completion. In addition to usual working hours, we offer evening and weekend appointments, home and hospital/hospice visits and a 24/7 telephone support number.
We collaborate with our trusted partners and associates to offer an ‘all-in-one’ solution to your associated needs. This includes tax reviews; family law advice; funeral plans; pensions; investments; probate sales; life insurance and business share valuations.

Ikhlas graduated in Law in 2014 from the University of Central Lancashire. During this time he wrote his very first Will and undertook groundbreaking research on the ability of Muslims in the UK to leave their estate in accordance with the Sharia following their death.
Between 2014 – 2019, Ikhlas developed his technical skills and expertise working on behalf of specialist private wealth law firms.

In 2019 Ikhlas set up Willinherit to provide a fresh alternative in what he describes as “an oversaturated and at times nonsensical legal market”. His aim in setting up Willinherit was simple, to provide a quality service at an affordable cost to help prevent costly legal and tax disputes post-death.
