How can I help you?
I am an Executive Senior Associate and joint Head of the Wills, Trusts, Tax and Probate Department, which comprises 2 Executive Senior Associates, 2 Partners, 2 Consultants, numerous Lawyers and a team of Trust Tax Accountants, all available to meet you at any of our offices or at your home, hospital or care home.
I have worked in this field for more than a decade and have extensive experience in all areas, but my particular area of interest is Trust work. I provide advice on the creation, management and cessation of Trusts, as well as acting as a professional Trustee myself for many of my clients. I also have considerable knowledge of succession and tax planning for rural clients.
Delivering what you really need
I believe that a good Lawyer does not just simply know the Law but understands their clients’ needs and objectives and provides clear, practical advice. I strive to assist my clients in a clear and approachable manner and always endeavour to understand the whole picture (both financial and personal, current and historic) in order to provide comprehensive advice. I believe in not simply identifying issues but suggesting potential solutions and working through the options to help clients make an informed decision.
What else should you know?
I originally qualified in Commercial Property in 2006 at the City Firm, Jones Day having completed my training contract with them. After a short stint in the City, I practised Commercial Property Law in St Albans for approximately 4 years before deciding to change specialism and move into the world of Wills, Trusts, Tax and Probate. My property background provides invaluable insight in my current field.
