Celia's work focuses on assisting UK-based clients, often involving landed estates and high-value probate matters. She also advises on all aspects of wills, trusts, mental capacity, tax and wealth planning, principally for UK-domiciled individuals. Her clients include high net worth individuals, executors, trustees and families.
Celia is an associate in Farrer & Co's Private Client team.
Celia advises her clients on matters ranging from wills, complex tax and trust planning to high value probates. Clients value her practical, comprehensive and straightforward advice and her thoughtful manner.
Celia's holistic approach guides clients through reviewing their wills, lasting powers of attorney, trusts and tax planning, and where required, the subsequent preparation of documentation. She can then advise her clients throughout their lives and across generations, working with other members of the firm to provide an integrated and reliable service.
Celia has substantial experience of high-value and multi-jurisdictional probates, and she offers a strategic, practical and empathetic approach to the formal probate and administration processes. She also advises on inheritance tax issues, including tax-efficient succession and post-death variations, particularly in regards to landed estates, and conditionally exempt or heritage assets.
The "trusted adviser" role is one that Celia relishes, and her ability to advise effectively on multiple issues allows her to build rapport with her clients, supported by her pragmatic, responsive and approachable manner.
