Making a Will:
Many people underestimate the importance of making a valid and properly considered will. We strongly advise all our clients to make a will, regardless of the transaction which brings them to our firm. The existence of a will ensures your assets are distributed according to your wishes. We will also advise you on tax planning issues at this time. If you do not make a will, your assets will pass according to the rules of intestacy which may not necessarily reflect your wishes.
Administration of Estates:
The death of a relative or loved one is a very difficult time. We can advise you on all steps involved in the administration of an estate, whether it is a testacy situation (a will exists) or an intestacy situation (no will exists) while at all times bearing in mind the sensitive nature of the situation at hand. We deal with the various institutions and parties on behalf of the Executors/Personal Representatives and go about extracting the Grant of Probate to the Estate. Our services in this area extend to filing the Capital Acquisitions Tax Returns on behalf of the beneficiaries and transferring property into the beneficiaries name(s). We will also assist and advise the Executors/Personal Representatives on their duties throughout the process.
Civil litigation is a process for resolving public and private legal disputes on civil matters through negotiation or through the courts.
Olivia Traynor & Co. Solicitors have extensive experience in dealing with all aspects of civil litigation.
Examples of the areas in which we offer services are as follows:
- Personal Injuries*
- Road Traffic Accidents*
* In contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement.
