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.

What our clients say

The Latham family have used Tees Solicitors and Catherine Mowat within that organisation over many years, in overseeing our family affairs. Their and her advice has always been, sound, helpful, constructive, and highly professional. Catherine offers a personal service, delivered within a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We always respect her judgment, opinion and advice.

I am very grateful for the professional service that one at Tees has shown me over the past few years. In particular my appreciation goes to Cathy Izzard who drew up my late mother’s Will, arranged Power of Attorney and administered probate; to Toni Chalmers-Smith for care fees planning and related financial advice and to Allan Wright for the smooth conveyance of my mother’s house sale. One provides a broad depth of services, but importantly they are knowledgeable, approachable and show empathy to what is sometimes a difficult process.                  

Catherine Mowat has been Deputy for our daughter since she was awarded compensation in late 2011. Catherine has continued the excellent service we received from her medico-legal colleague Paul Taylor who worked for 10 years to secure a settlement from the NHS in a complicated medical negligence claim. Catherine has provided a thoroughly professional service. From the outset she has communicated clearly, encouraged our questions, and explained the processes involved. Catherine is a very pleasant person and easy to deal with. Meetings are held at our house at times convenient to us.

My wife and I have recently had occasion to update our Wills and we met with Sarah. She was very helpful, courteous and understanding regarding the delicate nature of some of the bequests. We also found Sarah to be very professional and would not hesitate in contacting her again should it be necessary.      

My family has had a long relationship with Tees. Unlike many of the larger firms they are able to maintain a personal relationship that has turned the solicitor/client relationship into a strong and collaborative team. Like many of the largest firms I have found Tees large enough to cover a broad spectrum of specialist areas. When I am asked for a recommendation by friends and relatives I have no hesitation in facilitating an introduction.
