I head up the Lifetime Estate Planning team on the south coast, across our Southampton and Chichester offices. I assist my clients with estate and tax planning, advising on wills, lifetime giving, and on the preparation of Lasting Powers of Attorney (for personal and business use).
I also have expertise is setting up and advising upon trusts and Family Investment Companies. I particularly enjoy finding creative solutions for business owners, entrepreneurs and directors, property owners, and those who have inherited wealth.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I love that my job is demanding technically, but that I have to get to know my clients’ personal circumstances and their aims to advise them fully. Making the technical elements accessible for clients is very rewarding.

When at home I enjoy being with my family, but also find time to read, sing, and practice yoga.
