Wills, trusts & probate lawyers on stage at prestigious literature festival

07 October 2021

Our Legal 500-rated wills, trusts and probate lawyers hosted a free drop-in event on the opening day of this year’s prestigious Times and Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival.

The firm’s experienced lawyers were on-hand at the Festival’s Huddle venue to discuss queries and offer friendly, one-to-one guidance on wills, trusts and planning for the future – from tips on how to create a tax-efficient will to asset protection, as well as how to put one’s affairs in order.

Supporters of Cheltenham Festivals for over 20 years, Willans’ highly regarded lawyers help people at any stage of their lives. A part of the Gloucestershire community for over 70 years, they are recommended by national legal guides, Chambers and The Legal 500, and over the years, have advised second and third generations of the same family on creating a will, lasting powers of attorney, trusts and inheritance tax planning.

Bridget Redmond, managing partner, said:

“It’s an honour to be part of this year’s Literature Festival line-up. As a firm, we pride ourselves on our personable, approachable manner, so it’s great to have the opportunity to meet festival-goers, both local and from further afield.”

Simon Cook, head of the wills, trusts & probate team at Willans commented:

“When you ask, people will often tell you they haven’t made a will but it’s one of the most important things you can do to prepare for the future. We really enjoyed meeting those who stopped by.”

Clients interviewed by researchers from national legal guide, The Legal 500, describe Willans as: ‘A rare combination of a practice which offers a warm and welcoming environment which sits alongside highly professional services delivered with expert knowledge’ and ‘An excellent medium-sized firm. Big enough to have the expertise required, whilst being small enough to value clients and look after them well.’
