I qualified as a Solicitor in March 2009 and joined the Private Client department in September 2012, after working 3 years at a Legal 500 Essex-based firm. I am noted by the Legal 500 as ‘supportive, knowledgeable and confident’ and ‘good with elderly and high-net-worth clients’.

My experience spans a wide range of matters including: the preparation of Wills, obtaining Grants of Probate and Letters of Administration; administering estates; drafting and advising on both basic and more complex trusts (lifetime trusts and Will trusts); dealing with trust administration; preparation and registration of Lasting Powers of Attorney, assisting with the registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney and applications to the Court of Protection to appoint a Deputy where there is no Lasting or Enduring Power of Attorney, assisting individuals and families with estate planning and advising on inheritance tax.

I understand that the law can be difficult to understand and therefore aim to explain complex legal and technical issues to clients in a simple and straightforward way.

I am a member of the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and am also an associate member of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE).

‘All of the private client team provide an outstanding service but we would single out Nicola Healy and John Southan for special mention. Both are quick to respond to our queries and have been supportive of client events we have hosted over the years. We are confident when referring clients to them that they will provide clear, concise and unbiased legal advice. We can’t fault them‘.
