Lindsey is a Partner in the Tax & Trusts and Wills & Estates teams.
For over 25 years Lindsey has been providing advice to private individuals, business owners, executors, trustees, settlors and beneficiaries on a broad range of tax, trusts and estate matters. This includes advice on normal wills, statutory wills, guardianship arrangements for children, trusts, tax mitigation, succession and post-death planning, powers of attorney, Court of Protection applications and estate administration.
She also deals with inheritance disputes, including complicated family settlements and cases where arguments arise over the terms of a will or the administration of a trust.
Recent examples of how Lindsey has supported clients include:
- helping competing beneficiaries resolve a dispute about entitlement to an estate under the intestacy rules;
- assisting in mitigation of potential future Inheritance tax by post-death planning utilising deeds of variation; and
- investigating and uncovering an alleged fraud by an attorney appointed to act on behalf of an elderly and particularly vulnerable client.
