How can I help you?

Much of the work that I do for clients is done at a time of great stress and disruption.

Having initially worked in our Bishop’s Stortford office when I joined Tees in september 1998, I moved to head up the Wills Trusts, Tax and Probate team in Cambridge in 2009 and our team now includes lawyers, a trust and estate accountant and a paralegal. Our structure enables us to ensure your affairs are handled with expertise and efficiency, but combined with an understanding and appreciation of your particular circumstances – we know that one size does not fit all.

Delivering what you really need

My work includes advice on and preparation of Wills, creation and administration of trusts, estate planning and administration of estates. Additionally I advise upon Powers of Attorney.

A good deal of my work is around succession and estate planning for rural clients which requires a comprehensive knowledge of the pertinent issues. I work closely with my colleagues in the property and commercial teams, internal and external accountants and agents with a view to finding the right solutions for the family.

An increasing amount of my time is spent on Court of Protection matters. I advise on applications for Deputyships and am regularly appointed as a Professional Deputy for individuals, many in high value cases.

We have many specialist lawyers who are based in:

Cambridgeshire: Cambridge
Essex: Brentwood, Chelmsford, and Saffron Walden

"Catherine Mowat is extremely helpful and very approachable with a very pleasant manner. We would certainly use her again. Then we were passed to James Dowson who we are pleased with and work is still in process. We are very happy with the service we have received and is still ongoing."
