Chris's expertise includes:

Chris's recent work highlights include:

  • Acting on an intestacy matter that passed to 18 beneficiaries.

  • Acting on the administration of an estate where a Deed of Appropriation was required to reduce the Capital Gains Tax liability for the estate beneficiaries.

  • Preparing a Will for a client who was widowed and subsequently remarried. The Will was structured to ensure that the married couple benefited from three nil rate band allowances, thereby reducing the Inheritance Tax liability by £140,000.

  • Preparing a Deed of Variation to rectify an error in the Will of a deceased person and as a result ensured that the testator’s wishes were carried out.
