I qualified as a solicitor in 1975. I am a partner with Thompson & Cooke a long established practice based in Stalybridge. I am a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners. I specialise in trust and estate planning. My day-to-day work brings me in regular contact with accountants and other financial advisors.
Since becoming a Trustee of the Hospice in 1992, I have dealt with numerous legal matters on behalf of the Hospice including property acquisition, shop leases and giving general legal advice to the Hospice. My firm has also been actively involved in the “Will Week” Campaign.
I chair the Investment subcommittee. As a member of this group, I feel that I am able to make a useful contribution as a result of my experience in investment and financial matters.
