Bio: I advise on all aspects of Private Client work including the preparation of Wills, Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney and dealing with the Administration of Estates. I provide practical advice to business owners and high net worth individuals in relation to inheritance tax and succession planning. I set up various Trusts, including Personal Injury Trusts and Discretionary Trusts for asset protection, and I advise on general Trust administration. Outside of work, I like to spend time with family and I regularly visit friends who live in different places around the country. I enjoy running and I have participated in the Manchester 10k Run on several occasions and the Greater Manchester Half Marathon. I volunteer as a Telephone Friend for The Silver Line Charity, which aims to support lonely older people.
