For life overseas. With our seal of approval.
We are home to one of only a small number of specialist solicitors trained to authenticate legal documents for use in the UK or abroad.

Bell and Buxton Solicitors are widely known and highly-regarded for their expertise in advising on matters involving elderly and vulnerable clients.
Following Government advice the office will now be closed until further notice. We will continue to work remotely from home and you can contact us by phone and email. The main switchboard will be open and operating during normal office hours 9am-5pm Monday to Friday, we will pass your call on and ask the relevant person to contact you. At this difficult time we wish all our clients well, if you need us we will endeavour to respond.
Whether it's protecting the assets of an elderly person being financially exploited or advising on the best way to meet the cost of care, our knowledgeable and approachable team of solicitors can help.
We have considerable experience of advising on complex cases, which can often be emotionally charged. Quality is a matter of personal pride to everyone in the team. Our skilled solicitors are adept at dealing with matters sensitively when required, but equally able to take a robust stance to stop any unfair treatment that might be taking place.
Our solicitors who handle these cases are all members of one or more professional bodies including: The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners [STEP]; Solicitors for the Elderly [SFE] and the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists [ACTAPS]. We also have two solicitors who regularly act as Independent Deputies, as well as three solicitors who are registered Dementia Friends. This brings our clients peace of mind and confidence that their case is being handled by highly-competent lawyers who can achieve the best possible outcome.
We have been sought out as industry-experts by both the BBC and Channel 4 to contribute to documentaries covering this field and given expert input into investigations into journalism conducted by both the Dispatches and the Money Box programmes.
“Thank you Bell & Buxton for helping my daughter move into her new home. It was a ‘bit of a marathon’ for us and your team successfully helped us through what was an unusually difficult process.”
