I lead our Private Client Services team, helping clients to protect their assets through effective tax planning and providing objective, tailor-made financial advice to individuals and business clients.

I advise on Inheritance Tax matters involving tax-efficient trust and will structures, and am heavily involved with investment, pensions and protection matters.

Through my qualifications, breadth of knowledge and experience, I bring together a bespoke and fully integrated Private Client solution for my clients; which includes individuals, trustees and business owners.

A particular specialism I have developed over the last 10 years has been assisting business owners to acquire their trading premises through their pension arrangements.
