Since qualifying as a solicitor, I have specialised in tax and estate planning work for private clients, their families, trusts and partnerships. I am a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and a significant part of my practice includes the administration of estates. I have a particular interest in cross-border work and have been awarded the STEP Advanced Certificate in Cross-border Estates with Distinction.
I also provide advice to private philanthropists and those involved in the charity sector and sit on the Boards of Trustees of Drake Music Scotland and The Nurses’ Memorial to King Edward VII. I chair Turcan Connell’s Executry Practice Group (bringing together colleagues working on estate administration across the firm) and greatly value working as part of the wider Turcan Connell team covering a broad range of client issues.
