Wills & Probate

Mann and Co > Wills & Probate

A recent survey has showed that over 75% of adults in the UK are without a will.


Will Drafting Service


The most common reason for this is that we believe it will pass to our spouse/partner or children automatically. Unfortunately this is not always the case. If you haven’t done so already, make a will. This will allow your assets (your home, jewellery, etc) to be passed on to the people you want, in the way you want.


If you were to die without making a will, your wealth could go to the person you least want to have it, such as a distant relative or ex-spouse. And your family could also lose out, often to the taxman.


Alternatively, if you already have a will then make sure it is up to date. Are there grandchildren which now need including? Also make sure it is as tax efficient as possible – perhaps consider gifts, placement of investments into trusts or gifts out of normal expenditure.


At Mann & Co we will draft your will and if necessary help you organise your wealth in the most tax efficient way



Mann & Co Solicitors are members of Will Aid. Will Aid is a charity Will making scheme which raises funds for people in need here and around the world. To find out more visit www.willaid.org.uk

“Raz Mann is the sort of solicitor that I, as a Barrister who specialises in heavyweight crime want on my team. He is nationally acknowledged as one of the top criminal solicitors, his extensive following is a testament to that assertion. He brings a sound tactical awareness of how to advance his clients case from the police station onwards and throughout the trial process. He is particularly astute in recognising and addressing at an early stage the most advantageous way to bring about the required result in his cases. In short he delivers. That’s why he is the go to Mann!"

Baz Bhatia QC

“I am a criminal barrister with over 20 years experience. My instructions consist exclusively of serious fraud, money laundering and other complex criminal conspiracies. I only work with a handful of solicitors, those that are themselves experienced in the defence of such serious and complex cases. One such solicitor is Raz Mann, he and I have worked closely on a number of grave criminal matters over a period of years. In my view, his preparation is meticulous and his advice first rate. My job is made that much easier given the superb way in which the case has already been conducted prior to my instruction. Raz has a rare intellect coupled with fine judgement and an insatiable appetite for work. It is obvious to all who observe him that he displays a steely determination to get the job done! In short, if someone is unlucky enough to be charged with a crime they should seek to tip the scales in their favour by instructing Raz from the outset.

Imran Shafi QC

Raz Mann excels when dealing with the most complex and serious cases. He is sought out nationally by clients as a consequence of his ability to fight for the client and going the extra mile in his cases. His tactical awareness and tenacity make him an excellent litigator.

Claire Davies - Barrister

He is able to both fight for the client with tenacity and maintain the respect of the Court and opponents alike. He has tactical awareness and is able to steer a case to the clients advantage. As a result he is sought out by clients across the UK.

I can say with hand on heart that working with Ranbir Mann and his team at Mann & Co. has always been a delight. Mr Mann has always been impeccable in the way he runs and leads his firm, Mann & Co. He is extremely thorough, knows his client's case down to the last detail and always fights with tooth and nail to the end. Mr Mann would always be my first choice of solicitors to work with.
