I joined Irwin Mitchell in 1997 having earlier worked for HSBC Trust Company (UK) Limited. My areas of expertise cover Wills, probate, estates, tax planning and trust advice.
My primary role is client relationship management and business development for the Wills & Probate teams. This involves working closely with many large financial institutions to ensure that we are delivering a quality service for their customers and to ensure we grow business between us.

"Gillian Coverly was outstanding in her professionalism, in her knowledge but also in the manner in which she worked with our family as a time of great shock and distress, even out of hours when we needed help. Her sensitivity and empathetic nature helped us worked though what was a time pressing but deeply upsetting situation... I cannot recommend Gillian enough." - 5* Trustpilot review
"I was represented by Gillian Cloverly in my role as executor in the business of my late father's estate/Will. She provided support and understanding at a very difficult time especially during the coronavirus pandemic. All business dealt with as per dad's wishes and as quick as expected - within the year, despite the restrictions of the pandemic. I'm reliably informed by friends that have gone through the same process with their family that this is exceptional. It was complex but Gillian just got it done!" - 5* Trustpilot review
"Gillian is professional but approachable, knowledgeable, sincere and extremely caring in difficult times. I have found her professionalism to be top rate and her human touch on equal balance. I felt safe and secure with Gillian guiding and explaining the processes. My father had used Gillian for years and also highly rated her. I would not hesitate to recommend. Thank you Gillian for everything. You were a pleasure to deal with." - 5* Trustpilot review
"I first met Gillian Coverley via a chance telephone call several years ago and was sufficiently impressed to get in touch with her again when I needed help and advice when drawing up my will. I have not been disappointed. I now feel confident that I have received the best possible advice and, more importantly, that I can call upon Gillian for any help I may need in the future. I have particularly valued the individual attention and sympathy she has shown to me at a time of great personal distress and upheaval. She has the great gift of making one feel even quite modest affairs are of importance to her and will receive her fullest attention." - 5* Trustpilot review
