What the Law Society says about appointing solicitors as executors
Here at Wards we don't believe in taking a smoke and mirrors approach. It's too easy for solicitors to hide behind the mystery of the legal process, baffling with the science. We want to make sure you're aware of the standards we're working to, and that you can expect.
In no way is this more important than when considering appointing us as executors of your estate. Whilst it may provide peace of mind to know that you have a professional looking after your best interest, it's first important that you know all the facts.
The Law Society has published a helpful guide for solicitors and professionals, relating to how they should treat clients that appoint them as executors.
