Partner - Private Wealth & Tax
I work with clients and their families, helping them through difficult periods in their personal lives; this may be in relation to their Wills, dealing with a death in the family or helping with elderly relatives. I also like to think of imaginative solutions to various problems they may face in terms of their family and financial issues, particularly in relation to Inheritance tax and estate planning. I am recognised by Chambers Legal directory as a leading individual for private client work.
I am a Member of the Society of Estate and Trust Practitioners.
I went to the The Royal Grammar School, Guildford, and then to Selwyn College, Cambridge. I was admitted as a solicitor in 1985.
Outside of work I play the guitar in my band, Sultana. I also enjoy doing a bit of cycling.
