About Us

Our Principal Consultant

Michael Doctors has over 40 years’ experience advising people from all walks of life; working with both business and private clients within Legal Services and formerly as Managing Director of a successful Information Technology business.

With careful attention to detail he has the experience to address key issues such as; the dilution of assets from the effects of inheritance tax, long-term care, special needs or vulnerable beneficiaries, remarriage, divorce, bankruptcy and multi-generational tax liabilities.

Michael has had the experience of being a carer for his elderly parents, who both lived with him at that time. Having first-hand experience of life’s real problems, Michael has observed that most people are unaware of their rights of succession planning for their own families.

Michael is a family man with two adult children, three adult stepdaughters and grandchildren. He fully understands the issues family dynamics entail when dealing with estate planning.

As such, he focuses on providing the necessary guidance for both business and private clients alike. His specialty is in analysing people’s estates and family circumstances, and establishing the most appropriate trusts for clients to ensure correct succession planning, asset protection and tax planning.

Michael is a Fellow of The Institute of Paralegals – F. Inst. Pa and has also qualified with Central Law Training with a Certificate in Wills, Trusts and Lifetime Wealth Planning Strategies, including Trust Interpretation and Analysis.

All advice provided is covered by £2m Professional Indemnity Insurance.

He came back with the new Wills and associated documents within two weeks. I therefore strongly recommend the services of Michael Doctors who in my opinion did a very professional job.”
