Call Rory

I am a Partner in the Private Client team based in the Sherborne office.

I originally practised as an attorney for a large regional law firm in South Africa before moving to the UK twenty years ago requalifying as a solicitor under the Qualified Lawyers' Transfer Scheme. I then became a partner in 2001.

I specialise in estate planning and wealth protection, focussing on complex Wills, estate administrations and inheritance tax issues. I regularly advise farmers and business owners as well as individuals with property in foreign jurisdictions.

I like to think that I offer an innovative approach and I’m really passionate about creating a strong client service culture across the team.

I’m lucky enough to live in a lovely picturesque village near Sherborne and away from the office, I enjoy gardening, walking, cycling and exploring the coast in my sea kayak.

  • I am grateful for the professional and prompt manner in which you and your office have handled my mother’s estate. Thank you, and everyone very much indeed.
