What can Emma do for you?

Emma is a solicitor in the Private Client team and advises on a wide range of succession planning issues.  This involves assisting her clients with complex tax regimes as well as drafting and advising on tax efficient and flexible wills, trusts and powers of attorney.  Emma’s clients are varied, and include entrepreneurs, business owners and families with an international element.

Supporting your ambitions

Emma’s focus is to help her clients structure their affairs and protect their assets in a tax efficient way.  She has recently assisted a high net worth family to restructure their property ownership.  This involved making use of an existing LLP , with a long term strategy which incorporates a family investment company and a new trust.  Although the availability of valuable inheritance tax reliefs was integral to the advice, the main driver was establishing a single structure for the management of the property, with a view to passing it on to the next generation.

What do others say?

Emma has been praised for providing advice which is “timely and well drafted” and for “making complex matters straightforward”.  The team is top ranked in the leading legal directories, and clients are "impressed with the quality of advice".

Emma is personally recommended in Legal 500 for succession planning. 


What else should you know?

Emma is a full member of the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP), having completed the STEP Diploma with distinctions in all exams. She received a prestigious Worldwide Excellence Award for her Trusts exam.

In 2019 she was named one of​ eprivateclient's "Top 35 Under 35" and Junior Lawyer of the Year at the CDLS Legal Excellence Awards.
