London > Private client > Personal tax, trusts and probate

Hunters Law LLP undertakes a broad range of work such as advising on tax, trusts and succession planning matters for many wealthy families. Under the joint leadership of Lucinda Tite  and Wilfrid Vernor-Miles  it has particular experience in the administration of complex estates, the re-sealing of foreign grants of probate and post-death tax planning as well as court of protection work. The firm has an extensive landed estate practice – some of these landed estates are high-value and are held through complex structures involving partnerships, companies and trusts. Much of its work too has an international dimension as many of its clients are based offshore and require specialist cross-border estate planning advice.
