Private Client

Laytons' Private Client group is one of the most dynamic private client teams in the country. We apply our in-depth knowledge of the law with insight, so providing workable solutions that suit individual needs and consider personal financial circumstances.

A Proactive Approach

We believe in maintaining lifelong relationships with clients.  Providing you with building blocks of advice as your circumstances change, we help you maintain a process of continuous evolution, taking a very proactive and informed approach to your succession and fiscal requirements.

Our work for private individuals falls into 3 key areas:

  • Wills, estate administration and powers of attorney
  • Estate planning for high net worth individuals
  • Resolving contentious trust and estate matters.

Helping You 

Whether the advice we provide is geared towards inheritance tax planning for those looking to pass assets down through generations, or capital gains tax planning for the successful entrepreneur looking to cash in on today’s successful business or investment, our experience enables us to help you to identify the most successful route to anticipating succession problems before they arise, thereby minimising your tax bill.

Your problems solved

If you are involved in a dispute, whether it involves allegations of undue influence, incapacity or even simply that you have not received a fair share of the deceased estate – we are able to address these delicate issues with sensitivity and intellectual rigour.
