Jennifer Cockett LLB (Hons)

Senior associate, solicitor

I am a senior associate, solicitor in the wills, trusts & probate team.

I enjoy working closely with individuals and families who are planning ahead for their future. I help them to protect their assets and ensure that their friends, family and loved ones are looked after and secure should something happen to them.

This involves providing advice on the preparation of wills, trusts, inheritance tax planning and lasting powers of attorney. I also deal with the administration of estates.

Before beginning my legal career, I attended Pate’s Grammar School and studied law at the University of Warwick.
