Chris qualified as a solicitor in 2002 and as a trust and estate practitioner in 2008.  He became a partner and head of department in 2015.

His focus is on preventing disputes or unnecessary complications following death, using clear advice and documents that families can rely on in the longer term.  Fair and legitimate tax planning forms a part of this, but equally so does the family dynamic.

He advises a broad range of clients, from expatriates, farmers and property developers to Suffolk artists and health workers.  He has an interest in planning for those looking after a disabled family member, having personal experience of trusts for the disabled. He speaks French and has worked for a notaire in Haute Savoie, France as well as for a French property team in a previous firm, so has expertise in handling the requirements of families with assets in Europe and further afield.

In his own time, as chair and company secretary of ISCRE, a leading human rights charity, he has gained knowledge of charity law and management.  He has helped local charities with their governing documents, charitable registration and other requirements.
