Sadly death is inevitable, like taxes and it is comforting to know that your solicitor has years of experience in winding up estates. Carruthers Gemmill has a dedicated team of specialists who deal with trusts and estates and will be able to deal with all aspects of this complicated area of law. We can deal with all banks, building societies, stockbrokers and other institutions in preparing the Inventory of Estate and then applying to the Sheriff Court for Confirmation. We can deal with all the tax affairs of the deceased and generally take all the adminstrative pressure from clients at a very difficult and stressful time. This has been a core part of our business for well over 100 years.
