Associate in the personal planning team.
I am an associate in the personal planning department. My work focuses primarily on the administration of estates. However, I often advise clients in relation to planning elements, through the use of Lasting Powers of Attorney and Wills.
I have over 10 years’ experience in dealing with the administration of estates, from simple estates through to complex matters involving overseas assets, missing beneficiaries, businesses and intestacies. I understand that for a lot of people this will be the first time they have ever had to deal with anything of this nature and I appreciate that a compassionate but dedicated approach is key to supporting clients during this difficult time.
I also have wide-ranging experience in preparing Wills for clients to suit their circumstances while always keeping in mind the overall objectives of what the client wants to achieve for their families.
I will shortly be working towards becoming a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners to build on my existing knowledge.

It is anticipated that as lockdown restrictions ease, and particularly with children and young adults returning to education, cases of meningitis will start to rise.
As we continue to emerge from lockdown measures and deal with local measures and the short and long term economic impact of Covid-19, local authorities will need to re-assess how services will be delivered for years to come.
The Government first announced plans for a shared ownership right to buy in October 2019. At the time the sector raised concerns about the impact the plans would have on housing associations ability to borrow. An election and a pandemic later the Government announced, during the CIH Housing Festival last week, the return of the right to shared ownership as part of its Affordable Homes Programme (AHP).
Two final pieces of the possession jigsaw have been published on 15 September 2020. Mr Justice Knowles’ working group on possession proceedings has issued its guidance on the “overall arrangements” for possession proceedings.
