I am the head of our Private Client Department overseeing a specialised team of solicitors and paralegals who offer a wide range of private client services such as Wills, the administration of Estates, preparation of Lasting Powers of Attorneys and applications to the Court of Protection.
As both a Solicitor and a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners I often deal with complex Estates of those who have died and assist individuals and families planning for the future by offering tax planning advice and preparation of essential documents including Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney.
I also assist families whose loved ones may have already lost the ability to look after their own financial affairs by making applications to the Court of Protection to ensure someone is appointed to manage their finances. In circumstances where there are no family members willing or able to act then I also can take on the role of Attorney or Deputy for clients to manage financial affairs on their behalf.
Myself and my department pride ourselves on being approachable and friendly, providing professional, specialised and often complex advice in a language accessible to all of our clients.
