At Rutters, our aim is to deliver outstanding quality and excellent value for money so that our relationship with our clients will be long standing and close. All our private client team are qualified solicitors covering all aspects of Will writing, Trusts and legal advice concerning future planning, probate and estate administration.

70% of the population in the UK do not have a Will. A Will gives you peace of mind that your affairs will be dealt with the due care and attention they deserve and ensure those people you want to inherit, do so. Many people try to avoid thinking about their death, but preparing a Will with one of our solicitors can be a very positive experience. From mitigating Inheritance Tax or advice on who will look after your children, we can help. When preparing your Will, after looking after family and friends, you may consider your favourite charity. You can use your Will to look after everything that’s important to you, including charitable causes. To find out more about charitable giving click on the image below.
