I’m an Assistant Solicitor in the Wills, Trusts and Estates Dispute team in our London office.
I assist clients with Trust, Will and Probate Disputes as well as claims for financial provision under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.
Prior to joining Irwin Mitchell, I was involved in the reported case of Wellesley v Wellesley & Ors  EWHC 11 (Ch). This related to an estranged adult child’s application for financial provision out of her father’s estate.
I’ve assisted on multiple complex family trust dispute matters involving: suggestions of trustee negligence, re-settling trust funds into alternative structures, consideration of the tax implications of trust variations and, balancing the interests of familial and charitable trusts within one estate.
I’m an associate member of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS), having successfully completed the ACTAPS Diploma Course.
What inspired you to get into law?
I was always interested in training to become a solicitor. Working as a solicitor challenges me both academically and technically while allowing me to assist people with matters of great importance to them.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
It’s incredibly rewarding to be able to help people find a successful resolution to matters which can be emotional and difficult for them. Will, Trust and Estate Disputes deal with matters which are often emotive and personal, and being able to support clients through these disputes will always be rewarding.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
The Wills, Trust and Estate Disputes Team at Irwin Mitchell provide an excellent service nationally, I like that at I am able to work within a large team and take advantage of the wealth of expert knowledge and experience that comes with it.
What do you do away from the office?
When I am away from the office I like going to the theatre and to live music events. I love to cook (and eat) good food, and enjoy entertaining and being able to spend time hosting family and friends. I am also a keen skier and have been fortunate enough to enjoy ski trips across Europe.
