Molly advises individuals, families and trustees on a broad range of private client matters, including lifetime and post-death tax and succession planning, wills and trusts. She acts for both UK and international clients and works with lawyers in other jurisdictions to find practical estate planning solutions for clients with interests and assets around the world.

She also works closely with her colleagues from other areas of the firm, including the Family, Business and Property departments, when her clients require broader advice.
Molly enjoys getting to know her clients and, beyond the technical aspects of her work, she places great importance on understanding her clients’ needs, concerns and objectives, and tailoring her advice accordingly.
Molly is a member of the Law Society Private Client Section and the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP). She received a STEP Worldwide Excellence Award for achieving the highest score globally in her Qualified Practitioner Accounts & Administration paper.
