Rising cost of inheritance tax
Matthew Billingsley | 10.08.2018
Experienced in a wide range of private client work, I have developed a particular expertise in advising on wills, tax & trusts. I am skilled in basic to more complex will drafting, for example advising on the inclusion of trust arrangements and dealing with asset protection. I am developing my expertise in detailed succession planning, in particular assisting rural and farming clients to ensure that their specific objectives can be achieved.
I act for a variety of clients, ranging from individuals to corporate entities, with a particular focus on rural and farming clients. I pride myself on my empathetic approach to each client and the particular issues that concern them, which allows me to fully understand their position and therefore tailor my advice accordingly. I enjoy solving their problems, giving them confidence that only my concern is representing their best interests. My clients value my honest and open approach, as I treat each and every client with the respect and integrity that I too would expect.
Outside of work I am an accomplished violinist and regularly perform with various orchestras and theatre groups across Dorset. I enjoy all sports, in particular squash, badminton and football, also enjoying long walks in the countryside with my wife.
