Terry Belbin

Probate Manager, Private Client

Terry is probate manager whose primary area of work is non-contentious probate and estate administration.

With over 25 years' experience in this field, Terry can remain sensitive to the personal needs of the family of the deceased yet focus on administering the estate efficiently and cost effectively and is well placed to advise lay and corporate executors alike.  This can include identifying the estate, obtaining the relevant grant of representation, collecting assets, discharging liabilities and taxes, preparing accounts and distributing to beneficiaries.  Specialist help may include foreign entrusting documents, reseals, the concept of domicile and UK inheritance tax, multiple jurisdictional estates, different systems of international law and forced heirship.

Clients often include individual UK or non-UK domiciled executors, onshore and offshore banks and trust corporations and overseas lawyers.

Terry joined Forsters with the rest of the Gowling WLG London Private Client team in May 2017.  Prior to that he was at Gowling WLG (and its predecessor firms) since 1988.
