Sarah Paton

Associate Solicitor
  • +44 (0)370 1500 100


I qualified as a solicitor in the Private Wealth Team in September 2014. I advise on wills and succession planning, lifetime tax planning, powers of attorney, trusts and administration of estates.

I am currently specialising in estate planning, specifically tax and trust advice to wealthy individuals.

What inspired you to get into law?

I am passionate about providing excellent client service and very much enjoy meeting new people. I knew that a career in law, and specifically in Personal Legal Services, would provide me with opportunities to engage with a variety of people and help them at potentially difficult times.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?

I strive to be approachable, proactive and compassionate in all aspects of my work.

What do you do away from the office?

Outside of work I am a keen walker and frequently travel to the Lake District to tackle new fells. I also enjoy skiing and playing netball.

I studied English at university and am an avid reader and theatre-goer.
