Butcher & Barlow Solicitors



The Legal 500 ranked Private Client team at Butcher & Barlow looks after the affairs of individual clients and trustees throughout the North West. We help to plan and manage all aspects of our clients’ finances, including wills and probate, trusts, and tax matters, both in life and upon death.

Our experienced team is headed up by Chris Hopkins who is a STEP qualified solicitor. STEP (The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) is the global professional association for practitioners who specialise in family inheritance and succession planning. You can, therefore, be assured that when you instruct Butcher & Barlow you are in safe hands.

Wills and Succession Planning

We aim to get to know you and your circumstances so that we can provide detailed, common-sense legal advice and practical assistance, tailored to your situation and objectives. We have highly-trained and well-regarded solicitors to always ensure your Will is dealt with expertly. Being a full-service law firm, our team will also work with our Agriculture and Corporate and Commercial teams to ensure a full and comprehensive service to those clients who have business interests.

Lasting Powers of Attorney

If you are concerned about losing the ability to manage your affairs in the future, or a family member is no longer able to manage their own affairs, our team can provide you with expert, tailored advice on the options available to you. The process to enable a person to deal with someone else’s affairs can be lengthy and costly and it demonstrates how important it is to plan for later life whilst you are still able to.

By making decisions now regarding who you want to take control of your affairs should you be unable to, you will give yourself peace of mind and make the process easier for your family and friends in the future.

Butcher & Barlow is a firm with a rich heritage. With 10 Offices across the North West, we pride ourselves on being a law firm with local connections but the size to provide an approachable expert in every field. We are big enough to cope with the requirements of all manner of clients across a broad range of services, from making a Will to multi million pound share sales, but we do not to forget that the personal touch and attention to detail is what sets us apart from others in the profession.
