Gillian is a Senior Associate in the Private Client team and is based at the firm’s Reigate office.
Gillian has experience of a broad range of private client work, including all aspects of estate and succession planning. She has extensive experience of preparing Wills to meet the individual needs and wishes of clients, and in preparing and registering Powers of Attorney – for both Financial matters and Health and Welfare matters. Gillian can also assist in the registration of existing Enduring Powers of Attorney and with applications to the Court for Deputyship Orders.
She advises in relation to all aspects of estate administration, including obtaining Grants of Probate for both taxable and non taxable estates, and in relation to those estates where there are Wills and intestate estates where there are no Wills.
She has experience of dealing with a wide range of matters from those which are straightforward to those which are more complex. Her approach is always practical and friendly.
