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 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.

As a flexible and technologically-adept firm, we already had many home-working systems in place. We have now rolled this technology out to all our employees working for clients, so they can continue to work normally - and from home.

If you are a client, please be assured you can get in touch with Tees and we are still working on your case. To replace face-to-face meetings, we have the facilities to do video-conferencing, conference calls or just speak on the phone, as you need.

Due to the circumstances, please call us if you would have wanted a home visit, and we can organise the best and safest way of being in touch.
