Rachel Sugden LLB (Hons), TEP

Associate, solicitor

I am an associate in our wills, trusts & probate team.

I am a full member of the Society for Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) which means that I have completed post-qualification exams specialising in this area of law. I enjoy helping clients with complex estate and tax planning, lifetime trusts and the administration of estates.

I have an interest in helping business owners, from start-ups through to established companies, safeguard their business interests and build a legacy which can be passed on to the next generation in the most tax-efficient way.

Key skills

I can help you with:

  • Advice on preparing wills to suit your needs
  • Administration of estates, including very high value estates and those with cross-border issues or business assets
  • Inheritance tax planning both during your lifetime or after the death of a loved one
  • Protection of business interests
  • Creation and administration of trusts upon death or during your lifetime.

Experience highlights

My experience includes:

  • Assisting clients with the creation of lifetime trusts for the benefit of their wider family, as both a tax planning tool and a means of planning for the next generation and their complex needs
  • Helping business owners with ‘crisis and succession planning’ for their commercial interests, ensuring that this meets the needs of their business and their family
  • Preparing a successful application for a ‘grant on credit’, where executors of a substantial estate were unable to fund the payment of inheritance tax without the grant of probate.
  • "Extremely helpful in what was an emotional time, having to register power of attorney. I knew what was happening and what to do next. My sincere thanks go to her."
  • "Very clear, provided excellent information and her professionalism impressed us."
