Bloomsbury Professional are an established publisher of high quality books, digital products and events for lawyers, tax practitioners, accountants and business professionals.

Our portfolio of titles provides valuable content written by prestigious authors, editors and contributors, meaning you can rely on the quality of the information you are using and therefore make complex decisions with confidence.

Since 2018 we have been producing industry-focused events and 2020 is no different; though at the same time very different due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, which has resulted in us taking our established face-to-face events into the virtual world. The next event in our portfolio is the Private Client Taxation Conference taking place in November.

As well as events, Bloomsbury Professional are more traditionally a publisher and we produce many books and online services that cover the areas of Wills, Probate, Trusts, Tax and the Elderly and Vulnerable. Here are just some of those titles:

Parker’s Will Precedents

Recommended by the Institute of Professional Willwriters, Parker’s Will Precedents is a well-established and highly regarded publication, renowned for its clarity of drafting. Parker’s Will Precedents provides private client solicitors and professional will drafters with a thorough understanding and working knowledge of the will drafting process and, as a result, the ability to draft better wills.

Trusts and Estates 2020/21

A practical and accessible reference book that provides clear guidance on compliance and operation under current law and is indispensable when starting, running or ending a trust, or dealing with a deceased’s estate.

Capital Gains Tax 2020/21

Taking on a practical approach to the subject and concentrating on the most commonly found transactions and reliefs, Capital Gains Tax 2020/21 is an invaluable title for those who deal with capital gains tax on a regular basis.

Inheritance Tax 2020/21

Provides a clearly structured analysis of the major inheritance tax (IHT) provisions together with the tips and planning techniques needed to apply them successfully and to avoid potential pitfalls.

Financial Abuse of Older Clients: Law, Practice and Prevention

As the only practitioner title with detailed practical guidance and advice in this area, this is a comprehensive work written by a private client solicitor who has 30 years’ experience of practice, and is a regular speaker at conferences on the subject. No professional faced with this ever-increasing area of law, should be without it.
