An experienced team

We set up legalmatters to offer quick, innovative, fixed cost help with the legal aspects of family and wealth protection and management.

Our Head Office is in Chichester, West Sussex, but not all our employees have to work from HQ and we have clients throughout the UK. Behind the technology, there's a well-qualified and growing team of advisers, including specialists in Will and Trust drafting, estate planning, mental capacity guidance, inheritance tax and administering personal assets. So despite our high-tech approach, our clients can expect a high-quality legal service, whether they deal with us online, over the telephone or through a professional intermediary.
