Wills, trusts, tax & probate

Tees can advise on most issues relating to wills, trusts, tax and probate. We can help you plan for your future, or provide sound legal guidance about those you care about. We're also here to guide you through the legal process after someone has died.

Clear, practical advice

Our experts will help you make informed decisions about your future. We'll explain your options, and help you decide which route to take. Whether you want to make a Will, manage your tax liability or set up a trust - we've got the practical experience to guide you through it.

If you're caring for an elderly relative or loved one, we can advise on your legal options. For example, you might need legal authority to make decisions on their behalf (for example, managing their finances or healthcare). We can support you through the process, from start to finish.

Inheritance and estates specialists

We also provide advice after someone has died. When someone dies, there's lots of legal steps to take. If you need help sorting everything out, or have questions about your entitlements, we can help. For example, we can explain what you need to do if you're the executor of an estate. We can also help you contest a Will, if you need to. Whatever your circumstances, our experts have the practical experience to see you safely through it.

Our pricing structure

We’re completely transparent about our prices. We explain our fees upfront, normally during our initial consultation with you. Keeping you informed from the beginning, and throughout the process, is our priority.

I enjoy meeting our clients and feel privileged to build friendships and long-term professional relationships with them. I find it extremely rewarding working with families across generations to assist them in achieving solutions to complex problems. Inevitably families experience the loss of a loved one and I am pleased to be able to ease their burden at such a difficult time.

What our clients say

Toni Chalmers-Smith and her colleagues define "where there's a will there's a way".  Toni dealt with two separate financial problems and demonstrated tenacity, drive and an ability to think round problems and find solutions to deliver a result.  Toni was able to resolve and deliver excellent financial solutions above and beyond the expectations of myself and my son.  Toni and the team at Tees are a must for anyone considering financial advice.


I have been extremely happy with the services various departments in Tees have provided my family and I with, over the years.  The transition from my previous provider to Kersi Deboo has gone well and been a comfortable move. I feel Kersi is a breath of fresh air and I trust his judgement and value his guidance. I am grateful he has been around to help and guide my family on our financial journey.

Just a small note to say thank  you for organising the redistribution of my pension.  I have received all the notifications and the monies have arrive in all the right places. Thank you for all your efforts.

I just wanted to write to you personally and thank you for all your assistance in pursuing a Care Home Annuity for my mother. Our meetings have been both informative and enjoyable and the information is always useful.

Toni Chalmers-Smith is the epitome of a true professional. She is fully conversant with the products she sells and advised us on the best to suit our needs whilst illustrating other products - we had a choice. Her manner was without reproach- unhurried, answered questions in a calm and concise manner. She was at all times approachable and did not attempt to hurry us re anything. We had complete confidence in her and would not hesitate to use her again if the situation ever arose and we would most definitely recommend her to friends and family if ever asked.
