We can help you protect value for future generations.

We understand that managing your wealth and looking after your financial affairs is important to you and providing prudent succession planning to protect your wealth is one of the pillars upon which DSG has built its reputation. We are able to provide specialist advice in respect of Inheritance Tax and estate planning, which may include the use of wills, trusts and powers of attorney.

As trusts are central to a lot of succession planning we deal with the administration of a large number of trusts and our advisers have a wealth of experience in dealing with the administration and compliance issues which trustees face and are therefore able to ensure a seamless service to you.

Individuals wishing to reduce exposure to capital taxation cannot afford to overlook the role played by family trusts, an essential tool in estate planning and wealth protection. Trusts provide excellent shelter for family capital, and can also give protection at times of marital breakdown.

We also have extensive experience in dealing with post death estate administration (probate) and have been able to assist many of our clients at a time when support and guidance is most needed.

Our experienced and friendly private client team is one of the largest in the region and will be only too happy to discuss your succession issues with you.
