A bit about me

If you are looking to structure your estate to protect assets for your chosen beneficiaries, I can advise you on the most tax efficient way to do it. I will help you to create a will, lifetime trust(s), family investment company and other structures to assist with your estate planning. I will work closely with your other professional advisers, such as IFAs and accountants, to ensure a cohesive approach to your planning.

I work with all kinds of people across England and Wales, from elderly clients to directors of multimillion-pound businesses, to ensure their estate is structured in a tax efficient and ethical manner. Whether they need my legal expertise or a compassionate ear, I’m always on the other end of the phone with clear, straightforward advice.

Out of the office, I’m passionate about sport – in particular, I enjoy golf and Rugby Union.

I am an affiliate member of STEP and a member of Solicitors for the Elderly.

David is ranked in Chambers High Net Worth as a notable practitioner who demonstrates a wide knowledge and experience in his area of expertise and who is able to explain both technical and practical matters to clients very clearly and comprehensively. In addition, David is described as being very efficient, diligent, professional and supportive.

David also heads the firm’s Wills at Work offering. For more information please click here.

Want to know more?

Don’t put it off – I know it’s not everyone’s favourite topic, but it’s better to make decisions about your future and your estate as soon as possible.

There’s nothing worse than contemplating your own mortality but in my experience, it helps to have the conversation about what you want to happen when you go with your loved ones while you still can.

Making a will is vital, and proper advice can help protect your estate for future generations.

Protecting your loved ones by making a will is probably the most important thing you will ever do.

How do I stop the tax man getting my money?

There’s no simple answer to this one, as everyone’s situation is different. Careful planning can reduce the impact of inheritance tax, and I’m someone who can put a tax efficient solution in place.
