what our clients say

Edward Walter has produced our wills and other documents on time and meet our needs. The advice on IHT and CGT has proved very useful


what our clients say

My dealings with the probate solicitor, Lucy Head, was both professional, efficient but also friendly. We were kept informed throughout on progress and all communication was always clear and easy to understand. Our experience with Buss Murton made a difficult time easier


what our clients say

I used Buss Murton to manage the estate for both my parents. I found Graham Edwards & Michaela Lewer a pleasure to deal with. I have also used other members of Buss Murton for my parent's Wills and Power of Attorney. This is a very professional and thoroughly nice company and I recommend using them for all legal matters.


what our clients say

First class service from Amy Turner-Ives. Mrs Turner-Ives answered all our questions and explained everything in simple language which was easy to understand.


what our clients say

Following the painfully sad death of my dearest wife, Buss Murton was totally sympathetic, reliable and professional - from initial meeting, to conclusion of legal process. Their handling of the administration of her estate made life easier for me at a difficult time.


We believe it is essential to have a Will in order to control the destination, timing and access to your assets on death. Once we have discussed what your wishes and needs are, we can draft your Will in the most tax efficient manner.

Some deceased persons’ estates can be quite complicated to administer because there is no Will and there can be no obvious person who is entitled to the estate.

In other cases, estates may have complex assets some of which may be not located in the UK. Some persons will have Wills where the provisions of the Will may be contested.

Please see our later website page dealing with the issues of Wills and Probate and contesting a Will or defending against such a contest.

Our private client law services cover many areas. See our specific pages regarding capital taxes planning and trusts. Trusts can be used for a variety of reasons, not only for inheritance tax planning and capital gains tax planning reasons.

Please also see our subsequent page dealing with ‘planning for later life’, which includes Lasting Powers of Attorney, applications to the Court of Protection and acting as professional Deputies.

We believe in having close links with other experts such as financial advisers, accountants and bankers so that you can receive a comprehensive and integrated service.
