Advised on complex tax issues arising from the construction of an annexe for a client’s parents.
Dealt with a complex estate advising a beneficiary on their entitlement under a will, including the priority for funding a will trust and the repayment of a loan to an existing trust.
Acted as an executor and trustee in the administration of large complex estate where the deceased died before finalising his succession planning or business planning.

Jessica Jamieson is an excellent lawyer both in the terms of technical knowledge and also client service/handling. She has a very detailed understanding of tax and trust issues as well as wider private client matters including Court of Protection. She has an eye for detail and will very often pick up on a point that others before her will have missed.
