Peter Littlefield


I work principally in the areas of wills and succession planning, inheritance tax and complex executries. I advise individuals and families on tax and succession planning and executors and beneficiaries in connection with issues arising from the executry of estates. I am listed as a Leading Individual in Contentious Trusts and Probate by Legal 500.

Honesty and empathy are two key characteristics that I know our clients value. They also appreciate the strong team of intelligent lawyers we have here in the firm who can make the many difficult concepts we encounter in tax and estate planning appear simple. It is very important to be able to understand the client’s perspective and, of course, to communicate quickly and clearly.

I really value the relationships that I have with our clients and it’s rewarding to be able to help people navigate challenging and emotional situations. I also enjoy being in partnership with other hard-working partners who share my values and commitment to the firm.
