Providing legal services to private clients
We advise individuals, couples and families on all aspects of their lives: for the exciting times - for example, when buying a first home - or the more difficult times - when dealing with the loss of a loved one. Whatever path life takes, we can help on the journey.
We help clients to purchase residential property - whether it is their first home, a move to a larger property or part of an investment property portfolio. For some of our clients they are looking to downsize as their families have grown and moved away and they are looking for ways to protect their assets for the future.
Our accredited conveyancing team have reached the standard outlined by The Law Society in their CQS standard which means that the Wright Hassall conveyancing team "follow best practice, meet the highest standards of technical expertise and client service and are able to satisfy regulators, lenders and insurers".

Protecting the wealth that you have generated throughout your lifetime is often a task which people put to one side, thinking that they will deal with it 'when they have time' or 'when the time is right'. Sadly, we see too often that time is not a respecter of to-do lists so we always encourage people to consider their assets and protect their wealth, sooner rather than later. Our team of experts regularly work with people to explain their options and to identify the most appropriate course of action given their individual circumstances. Find out more here.
Few people enjoy dealing with conflict, made more challenging when it is in relation to your own family. We regularly work with clients to help them to resolve disputes in relation to relationship breakdown, children matters, contested wills, succession planning in relation to family businesses and other disputes.
Our family team work closely with their private wealth colleagues to advise clients on the use of pre and post nup agreements which are an effective tool in protecting your assets at the start of a new relationship.

Care and capacity
Dealing with issues around the care of a vulnerable adult or capacity issues for yourself or a member of your family can be very challenging. We are experienced at dealing with these matters and regularly work with families to set up Powers of Attorney and to deal with Court of Protection matters.
We also are experienced in advising different generations of a family on care issues: whether this is a parent looking to establish care provision for a vulnerable child, whether this is a son or daughter looking to manage the affairs and arrange care provision for their parents or individuals planning ahead to manage their own care provision and capacity arrangements.
We are Dementia Friends Champions and have trained over 40 of our colleagues to be Dementia Friends, which gives us a greater understanding about dementia and how it affects people's day-to-day lives.
