Her keen understanding of trusts has made her a respected voice in the field.
Raised in an owner-managed business environment and armed with a background in business and accounting, Claudia specialises in advising business owners on Inheritance Tax planning (IHT), ensuring that business interests are passed on tax efficiently and in the most appropriate manner to the next generation.

Through drafting wills and offering expert guidance, Claudia ensures that farming assets are transitioned to the next generation in the most tax-efficient manner possible.
