About me:

I am a Solicitor in our Tax, Trusts and Estates Department

I qualified as a solicitor in 2012 and have specialised in private client work covering wills, probate, trusts, tax, lasting powers of attorney and Court of Protection deputyship work.

Since qualifying I have developed particular skills in dealing with high net worth clients, complex probate matters and Court of Protection applications. I have a sensitive and efficient approach in dealing with clients at what is often a difficult stage of their lives. I deal with matters promptly and effectively to provide closure in probate matters and peace of mind for estate planning matters.

 

Key cases:

  • Administering multi-million pound estates including extensive negotiation with HMRC regarding the applicability of Business Property Relief and Agricultural Property Relief
  • Completing an application to the Court of Protection for a Deed of Variation on behalf of an incapacitated client
  • Drafting lifetime Trusts for high net worth clients’ estate planning
