Alex ElphinstonSenior Associate
35 years' experience helping individuals and families plan for the future.
I’m a senior associate in the private legal services team, advising clients on wills, trusts, gifts and estate administration as well as Court of Protection. I work closely with colleagues in the family and clinical negligence teams, where appropriate.
After qualifying as a solicitor in 1980, I’ve always advised on wills, trusts, Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection matters. I speak regularly on these matters to other professionals and support groups for individuals. I also hold various committee roles with related professional bodies, including STEP and Solicitors for the Elderly.
