Comprehensive estate planning solutions

Whether your clients' estates are of large or modest value, our comprehensive estate planning solutions cover every type of estate planning requirement from a basic Will to Inheritance Tax Planning, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Probate Services – ensuring that your clients' current and future needs are catered for. All the advice and recommendations are prepared by our in-house legal team and comply with the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) Will Writing code, covered by £2m professional indemnity insurance.

The provisions that Legacy Legal include in their Wills and Trusts have been approved by tax barrister James Kessler QC. James has practiced as a barrister since 1985 and was appointed QC in 2003. He is Head of Tax at his chambers located at 15 Old Square, Lincoln's Inn, London WC2A 3UE, and one of the founders of STEP, for whom he drafted the STEP Standard Provisions.

"Since we have introduced estate planning into our client proposition, our practice has seen a dramatic increase in business, not only through the sale of Wills & Trusts but also in the number of Financial Services products sold."

The future of Legal services

After years of the public paying high-priced lawyers and legal consultants to produce Wills and offer estate planning services, Legacy Legal provide the same high-quality, Queens Council–approved work, training, professional backup and support to provide a real alternative.

On 28 January 2016, the Law Society published a report about the future of legal services in the UK and identified an inevitable impact on the solicitor professi on and key drivers for change in the current landscape of legal services.

The report attempted to predict how solicitors' and lawyers' interests may change in the future, where they will face competition and what opportunities may present themselves in a changing market.

The key drivers of change in the legal services market identified include:

  • How clients will buy legal services in the future
  • Technological and process innovation
  • New entrants and types of competition
  • Wider political agendas around regulation

The legal services sector is a significant element of the UK economy, with an estimated turnover of £30bn. The changes to the legal services market bring signifi cant opportunities for financial service professionals who offer an estate planning service as part of their client proposition.

"I have been meaning to get into the Wills & Trusts market over the last few years, but Legacy Legal has been the only company that has given me a clear outline of how it works and a streamlined approach on how to position it to clients."
