For legal advisors

Need some support?

These pages are specifically for lawyers and legal professionals, as well as for lay executors. They can help you advise a client who’s thinking about leaving a gift in their Will to Guide Dogs, and provides answers to the questions we’re most commonly asked about gifts in Wills.

Lay executors and those new to administering estates may find one of our guides useful. There are two versions: one for English law and one for Scottish law. Please feel free to get in touch with us if you would like a copy.

Solicitors may be interested to know that their clients can also support us by requesting donations in lieu of flowers at their funeral. We have funeral collection envelopes to make it easier to arrange. They contain a donation form which means that friends and family can donate without having to collect cash. If your client might be interested in this, please direct them to our donate in memory pages.
