Job Role at EMG

I joined EMG in June 2018 as part of the Wills, Trusts and Probate team.  My role includes advising clients on the preservation of assets, both now and for future generations and the Inheritance Tax planning benefits and pitfalls.  My work includes the preparation of Wills, both simple and complex, the setting up of and administration of Trusts, drafting and executing Lasting Powers of Attorney, Statutory Wills and Deputy applications as well as all aspects of the administration of estates, probate applications and post death variations.

Experience

After graduating from Newcastle University, I lived and worked in London for a time, working in the Houses of Parliament, allowing me a fascinating insight into how the law is made and influenced.  When a move to the North East presented itself, my (now) husband supported a return to Newcastle for me to study at Northumbria University to complete my LPC.  I was lucky enough to train and qualify into a firm in the North East and therefore remain local to my historical roots, specialising in the private client field.  People and relationships have always been key to my professional life and I hope to continue to work to build on those and forge relationships amongst other professional advisers to ensure the best overall service for EMG clients. I am an Associate Member of both STEP (Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) and SFE (Solicitors for the Elderly).

What do you like about working at EMG?

EMG is a, now not so little law firm, with an enormous heart.  People are at its core and the dedication provided by everyone employed here is reflected by the commitment the firm provides it employees with, which can only translate into an overwhelming commitment everyone at EMG wishes to afford their clients.  Oh, and the parking is pretty good!

Outside of EMG

My husband and I have combined a love of travelling and photography which has meant we have been lucky enough to see some amazing places.  With a large, but young, family the travelling plans have been scaled back for the time being, so you are most likely to see me running late for school either end of the day or, in brief moments of ‘me time’ browsing in antiques shops!

Lucy qualified in November 2006.
