"I am a probate lawyer who regularly deals with high value estates and experience in dealing with foreign, business and agricultural assets and claiming appropriate inheritance tax reliefs”

I have been at Higgs now for just over nine years and I have always felt a sense of pride in the firm I work for and it’s reputation. The work I do is always varied and sometimes challenging.

The nature of the job I do means you could be dealing with anything and you need to be able to work through problems and situations you haven’t come across before on a regular basis and this means there is always something new to learn.

  • Managed to retrospectively claim a transferrable Inheritance Tax Nil Rate Band despite the claim being 5 years out of time.
  • Completed an estate administration which had been half administered by an executor who subsequently passed away without keeping any records of the administration he had completed.
  • Completed an inheritance tax account and obtained a grant of probate for a family that had undertook various forms of lifetime gifting to make use of allowances and business property relief
