I joined Butcher & Barlow in 2004 and became a Partner in the firm in 2010.
I specialise in:
- Estates and Tax planning;
- Preparation of Lasting Powers of Attorney; and
- Court of Protection applications.
Whilst I am now based primarily at our Bury office, I do have strong connections and a number of clients at the Prestwich office where I worked from 2005 until moving to the Bury office at the end of 2012.
I am a fully qualified member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP), the leading professional body for the trust and estate profession worldwide, having been awarded an overall distinction for completion of the course as well as achieving the highest mark worldwide in my final exam. My results place me in the top 10% of STEP qualified practitioners in the world meaning I am perfectly placed and well equipped to offer specialist and expert advice on all types of private client matters.
I deal with a substantial and varied client base, helping people plan for the future and providing solutions for their planning needs. I am also responsible for the administration of some very large estates as well as being involved in the management of a number of trust funds totalling several million pounds which have been running for many years.
Whilst out of the office I play the guitar and sing in a local band. I also enjoy football, playing as much as I can as well as going to watch Manchester United as much as possible. Whilst not playing music or football, I enjoy spending time at home with my family and young children.
