Renowned Wills, Trusts and Probate Services

Ellisons is one of the oldest firms in the region and has developed a large client following as a result of both longevity and quality of service. Ellisons’ thriving Private Client team can take the stress away when it comes to ensuring you and your loved ones are looked after.

A Will does not just account for money and UK property. It can also contain provisions regarding business and/or farming/agricultural interests, stocks and shares, international property and trusts, to name but a few. If you die without a Will, or die with a Will that is invalid, your assets will be distributed according to imposed law rather than according to your wishes. This could mean that those people you wish to benefit from your Estate, or those people who you assume will benefit from your Estate, may not. It could also lead to costly legal action after your death. Making a Will is the best way to ensure that your Estate is passed onto family, friends or charity according to your wishes and to choose the people you trust to carry those wishes out.

Our Wills, Trusts and Probate Solicitors can not only prepare your Will(s) on your behalf but can provide detailed and efficient advice on lifetime planning, paying particular attention to Inheritance Tax. The team has a breadth of experience which enables us to assist you with planning ahead and making sure your family is provided for in the future. You can arrange to meet our team at any of our offices in ColchesterChelmsfordIpswichBury St EdmundsFrinton-on-Sea or Clacton-on-Sea.
