By Rosemary Hardwicke, solicitor and senior director of Walter Gray & Co Limited. Member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners and Solicitors for the Elderly.

In 2017 Walter Gray & Co celebrated its 70th anniversary – marking over 70 years of Islandwide legal service, and demonstrating a deep understanding of the needs of the Island community.

We have clients who return to us time and time again, and have generations of families who continue to put their trust in us as we guide them through the legal maze.

Our wills, probate and trusts department offers clear advice in plain English. Costs are discussed up front, and in fact, cost information is provided clearly on our website. We offer a sympathetic approach to care of the elderly, which includes management of assets, Lasting Power of Attorney and Court of Protection matters.

Our conveyancing teams in Ryde and Cowes enjoy a high reputation throughout the Island for their efficient and supportive service during what can be a stressful time. Our knowledge of the Island is invaluable, and the ability to inform clients at each stage of the transaction is always greatly appreciated. Clients old and new are assured of our very best attention at all times.
