Julie Jaggin is a solicitor providing comprehensive, clear and practical tax and succession advice to a wide range of overseas and UK clients. Her distinct approach is to meet objectives efficiently and in line with expectations.

Julie has enjoyed a broad experience of private client work including the preparation of wills, lasting powers of attorney, lifetime gifting and capital tax-planning, the administration of estates, trust set-up and administration, trust disputes and mental capacity issues
