Helping people plan for the future and resolving difficulties after a loved one has died is at the heart of what I do. Practicing in this area of law is complex, so it is vital that I understand where people want to get to and provide the best solution to achieve that.
I support a broad spectrum of clients, from those who want to do complex tax planning to the elderly to young people wanting to ensure their new family is looked after. I provide specialist legal advice on various concerns including wills, lasting powers of attorney and probate.
Outside work, I enjoy reading Penguin Classics and getting involved in sports like rowing, skiing, and ice skating.
