Hannah Wall BA (Hons), MA

Associate, solicitor

I am an associate solicitor in our Legal 500-rated wills, trusts and probate department.

I advise UK and non-UK resident clients on matters including tax and succession planning, wills, trusts and lasting powers of attorney.

I am also experienced in advising on the administration of estates, particularly those that are high-value and complex, frequently with a cross-border element such as non-UK assets or a foreign domicile issue.

Key skills

  • Assist executors with the administration of estates, including complex high value estates and those with cross-border issues
  • Tax planning (lifetime and post-death)
  • Succession planning for families, especially those looking to make provision for their children and grandchildren
  • Creation and administration of trusts
  • Advising on and preparing lasting powers of attorney, including for business owners requiring a separate LPA to cover their business activities.

Experience highlights

  • Administration of an estate which included a sizeable existing debt to HMRC, which required lengthy negotiations and an in-depth understanding of the disguised remuneration rules
  • Establishing and providing ongoing advice to the trustees of multiple family trusts for the benefit of future generations, including tax advice and guidance on trustee powers and duties
  • Advice to clients with assets in several jurisdictions in addition to the UK including the US, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. This required the consideration of issues surrounding domicile, forced heirship and sharia’ law and advising on the interaction of UK and foreign wills to ensure they are fit for purpose and do not revoke each other
  • Administration of a large estate including overseas assets and the opportunity to vary a will to save a significant amount of inheritance tax.
