Office: Swindon

I have nearly 10 years’ experience in the Private Client field, having trained and qualified in an Oxfordshire/London-based firm before moving to Awdry Law in Summer 2023.  

Complex and unusual are my favourite types of cases, playing to my problem-solving attitude.  As such, my most significant experience throughout my career has been dealing with legally and practically challenging estates, often where no Will has been left.  

Additionally, I involve myself in the firm’s business development and particularly enjoy writing insight blogs on various topics. I monitor changes in the law and high-profile court cases, to keep on top of legal developments and keep our client advice up to date. 

Examples of work:

  • Post-death planning
  • Taxation of estates
  • Tax-mitigation
  • Complex and unusual probate applications
  • Intestacy (no Will left) and missing beneficiaries
  • Advice and interpretation of Wills with problematic drafting
  • Negotiations with UK tax authorities and intermediaries involving values of assets
  • Drafting documents, including Wills, deeds of variation, complex estate accounts and trust deeds
