Blair Cadell are leading providers of residential property services including estate agency and conveyancing, commercial property and services to business. We also offer a diverse range of personal legal services to individuals and families.
Blair Cadell is a busy a Edinburgh solicitors firm with a dedicated private client team who possess exceptional client care and communication skills. It is our aim to provide a personal, tailored legal service with practical answers at a sensible cost to everyday, often urgent, sometimes sensitive, complex or unexpected needs. We pride ourselves in our attention to detail and the cost-efficient service that we provide.
Work in our practice is typically very varied: our solicitors responsibilities range from writing basic wills for members of the general public to advising on complex tax and trusts issues; examining Court of Protection matters to wrapping up someone's legal and financial affairs after their death. We specialise in advice on tax returns, payroll, bookkeeping and tax planning for personal tax payers, sole traders, partnerships, and limited companies alike - on income, capital gains, inheritance, partnership, corporation, executry and non-residents landlord taxes, as well as VAT.
Drafting wills demands that you strike up good relationships with clients from the outset. As such we always go the extra mile with our clients and home visits are standard. Our solicitors are experienced at quickly and sensitively establishing a client's financial situation, assets and liabilities in order to understand the likely size and value of their estate. It is important then to evaluate how the assets are held (which will affect how they may dispose of them) as well as their family situation and personal wishes, so that we can offer advice on ways to pass on property to the beneficiaries a client wants, while also mitigating their tax liability. While many wills are comparatively straightforward, it is often only a small step before finding oneself involved in more complex trusts and estate planning. Our Associate Paul Hogarty regularly gives advice to will writers and advisors on the more complex aspects of asset protection. He has also given public talks to potential clients.
When a death occurs, our private client team have the sensitivity, knowledge and expertise that is needed to guide and assist with arrangements, and to deal with the efficient winding up of the deceased's estate. Our understanding approach is often remarked upon in client testimonials. Every situation is different but we apply the same care and attention to legal process in each case in order to gather in and realise our client's assets. Once again, this can be straightforward, however difficulties can arise - which is where our experience and expertise is vital.
At Blair Cadell we pride ourselves on delivering Big Firm Service at a Small Firm Cost. As our clients will tell you we are professional, efficient and easy to do business with.
