James HallSenior Associate
Specialist in life-stage planning.
My role involves providing advice to individual clients around inheritance tax and capital gains tax planning; estate planning and wealth protection; trust advice, creation and administration; wills; and probate and estate administration.
I particularly enjoy helping clients with unusual inheritance or capital gains tax problems and specialise in the use of trust and corporate structures and complex wills.
