Virginia is an Associate in the Tax & Trusts and Wills & Estates team.

Experienced in the full range of private client work, she advises on the legal and tax issues associated with individual and family wealth and matters associated with trusts.

Her practice centres on the drafting of wills, probate applications and creating lasting powers of attorney, drafting trusts and acting for elderly clients.

She has a particular focus on the creation of family trusts for inheritance tax planning purposes.

Recent examples of how Virginia has supported clients include:

  • ensuring the will of a divorced individual took full advantage of available inheritance tax allowances, and catered for both their new partner and family members;
  • guiding a client to an informed decision about appropriate executors and additional trustees in relation to their will and trusts; and
  • ensuring that the wishes of a deceased individual were carried out by drafting a post-death variation to their will within two years of their demise.
