Hello, I qualified as a Solicitor in 2003 and became an Associate in one of the largest private client firms in Cheshire. I joined Cullimore Dutton in 2015 and head up the Wills, Trusts & Estates team. I act for many local landowners, farmers, family businesses and trustees.

Throughout my career I have gained a wealth of expertise in relation to private client law and also advise Clients on a wide range of issues including Court of Protection, Powers of Attorney, elderly client issues and inheritance tax. I specialise in:

  • Succession planning
  • Estate administration
  • Wills, tax and trusts, with particular emphasis on agricultural and large estates.

I am a full member of the Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners (STEP).
