Fiona is building up her reputation as a trust and estates specialist, advising clients with substantial assets and complicated family relationships and using appropriate structures to pass wealth down the generations in a tax efficient and controlled matter.  She acts for a wide variety of individuals, including business owners, elderly clients and lottery winners, covering a range of areas such as wills, trusts, lasting powers of attorney, advance decisions, inheritance tax planning, gift and statutory will applications in the Court of Protection, and other related matters.

Fiona balances technical expertise with the softer skills necessary to deal with difficult family situations and was included in eprivateclient's 2017 "Top 35 under 35" list of private client practitioners in the UK.
