What we do
Our philosophy is customer service.
When making a Will, even if you think your situation is straightforward, there are always many things to consider and plan for.
Good planning reaps dividends. The recent Inheritance Tax laws (2017) can be very confusing and trip people up - Inheritance Tax planning is my speciality.

Who we serve / Who we do it for
Most of our business is won by receiving many referrals which is a testament to the quality of our service and it makes clients more confident in achieving a satisfying result.
Many people, whatever their background, really need our support and no pressure explanations. We have successfully helped people navigate these tricky problems with wills:
- Inheritance Tax advice
- Reducing liabilities
- How best to leave assets to beneficiaries
- How to protect assets from 'predators and creditors'
- Guardianship rights with vulnerable children and adults
- Powers of Attorney
- Giving people the right to occupy their home, not be forced out by care home fees.
People come to us to protect their assets along the family bloodline, particularly in cases of divorce, bankruptcy, re-married people and those with children from other partners, High Inheritance Tax threats and clauses against different family members or partners.
About Meers Legal
Our firm, Meers Legal, have been working with Rollingsons Solicitors in Trafalgar Square providing Wills, Trusts and Lasting Power of Attorney for our London based clients.
In 2018, after 27 years, Rollingsons stopped practising and most staff moved across to a new law firm.
We used this opportunity to expand our business. We kept our team together and continued working independently out of our office in Victoria.
About Jeff Meers
I was born in Lambeth and live in Putney so I consider myself a Londoner. My mother drilled two important things into me. Always 'say it up front' and 'transparency is a virtue.'
I truly enjoy travelling across London to meet clients in the comfort of their home. I love seeing new places and clients can best relax in their own surroundings. Ensuring clients are fully informed and gain ‘peace of mind’ Is the key to our success.
I am married with four children. Living in central London makes travel much simpler and I can easily watch Cricket, Football and Rugby when I can find the time.
