I am a Solicitor, Notary Public and Accredited Mediator from Bristol and studied at Cardiff University (1988 – 1992). I speak fluent Spanish & French and a large part of my work involves the interaction between English law and the law of another country. For example, this might mean explaining to a court in Spain why an English divorce sentence was drafted in a particular way, or clarifying the terms of an English Will to a lawyer in France.
I am registered with the Solicitors Regulation Authority and also with the Colegio de Abogados in Alicante, Spain.
The type of work I am typically involved with is reviewing Wills for a couple, advising upon claims that might be made against a person’s estate, notarising a Power of Attorney for use in Portugal, drafting Lasting Powers of Attorney (both for the UK & overseas), advising Executors regarding the administration of an estate, Deeds of Variation and Notarising UK company documents for use abroad.
