Lynn has over 20 years’ experience in the private client field and specialises in Tax Planning, Wills & Estates, Powers of Attorney and Trusts. She has extensive experience in helping families through the legal issues following the death of a loved one, to include all aspects of estate administration, both testate and intestate. Linked to this, she advises beneficiaries on options open to them in relation to their inheritance and their own succession and tax planning. Specialising in this area requires the ability to construct and explain inheritance tax and capital gains tax planning and mitigation solutions for individuals in a user friendly way. Dealing with death on a daily basis requires Lynn to be both professional and approachable, something she achieves thanks to the fact that she enjoys the job she does.

Lynn is a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP). STEP is the worldwide professional association for practitioners dealing with family inheritance and succession planning.

Out of the office, Lynn’s interests include trekking, cycling and travelling.
