Philip’s extensive journey into will writing and estate planning began over 20 years ago in Manchester. He created Philip Anthony Associates, where he serves the North West, Yorkshire and Northern Wales area.
Since then, he has written over 20,000 wills and worked with thousands of clients to provide peace of mind when preparing their Wills alongside Lasting Powers of Attorney, Trusts and preparing Probate cases.
A fellow of the Society of Will Writers, a title not given to many, Philip is also a STEP qualified Estate Planner; STEP is the global professional association for practitioners who specialise in estate planning and wealth management.
Security and Sincerity
Philip recognises that a will means more than just preparing for the future. He knows that his clients are looking for security for their families and loved ones when they are no longer around. He understands a devoted professional is of utmost importance; hence his goal is to make this process as painless as possible, making the journey clear and straightforward. His cases have ranged from dealing with putting paperwork in place that ensures a business can continue; to delivering the wishes of how an estate should be divided.
He understands that writing a will affects not only the client who is writing it, but also their loved ones. That’s why his services are just as focused on providing a high level of support to those affected by the loss of a loved one. He knows support could be needed anytime, from the reading of the will; to when it reaches probate.
A Compassionate Commentator
His work shows his caring attitude where he offers a home service, daytime or evening, for those who cannot leave their home or feel uncomfortable to do so, especially relevant as we are slowly leaving a pandemic.
He also offers remote meetings via a range of secure platforms (including electronic signatures). His compassionate nature spreads outside his business. He has assisted several Wealth Mangers, IFA’s, Mortgage Brokers and Accountants over the last 20 years, helping them put their client’s affairs in order and ensuring their clients also have the right plan in place.
Philip is well known in the estate planning and professional services community. A frequent Wills and Estate planning commentator and blogger on social media platforms, he aims to educate wider society to be more proactive in writing a Will. His significant expertise in the field means that he is perfectly suited to be an Advisory Board Member of the BEST Foundation.
