Andrea is head of the private client & tax department and a member of the contentious trust & estates team.

She specialises in advising individuals, trustees and trust companies in complex, high value disputes both domestically and internationally. Andrea is aware that family relationships are often at stake and approaches the resolution of disputes with that in mind. She is highly regarded for her ability to engage with clients and other professionals in a sympathetic and constructive manner. She is able to absorb the emotive issues whilst focussing on the end game when acting for family members or trustees.

She works closely with wealthy families on generational succession planning including wills, trusts, wealth protection structures and pre and post nuptial agreements.
