Emma qualified as a solicitor in 2018 and has three years PQE experience in corporate, commercial and regulatory practice, which more recently involved working with private wealth clients in other jurisdictions to arrange registration of their beneficial owners and trusts for the new Register of Overseas Entities at Companies House and the Trust Registration Service. .
Her previous career in the City of London involved high value contract drafting, negotiating, reconciliations and accounting before completing a training contract in a high street law firm. Here, Emma covered Wills, probate and estate planning, LPAs and deputyships, family and children matters as well as litigation -including property, personal injury, contentious probate and debt disputes.
Her wealth of experience in contracts (understanding and explaining clauses, anticipating problems and managing risks) and data protection compliance experience, some experience advising on directors duties and corporate agreements and international tax compliance (FATCA/CRS, DAC6/MDR) is invaluable when dealing with any business assets.
Emma says: “I can empathise and put clients at ease, having experienced loss and difficult family circumstances myself. I pay attention to detail and strive to ensure my knowledge is up-to-date and I am fully aware of all possibilities so that clients are fully informed and understand their choices, because I also understand how frustrating it can be when things are not explained fully or important issues are missed.”
On why clients should use a solicitor for this type of work, Emma says: “Although clients may be tempted to tackle this work alone, there are important legal aspects which carry heavy consequences if done incorrectly and can be very costly errors for executors, trustees or beneficiaries.”
