Call Tom

I am a partner in our specialist trust team, working across our Wells and Bath offices. In particular I assist our clients with the use of trusts for tax planning, succession planning and for the protection of assets.

I also advise on the creation, administration and winding up of existing trusts. I deal with the preparation of Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney and am a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).

I have a particular interest in the transfer of farms and businesses to the next generation. It is a pleasure to assist a family with a viable arrangement (often long in the planning) that will ensure that their business is passed onto their children.

I qualified as a solicitor in 2010 after completing my Legal Practice Course at Exeter University and my training contract at Clarke Wilmott.

I live in Somerset with my young family and when not chasing after them, enjoy cycling and running.
