The businesses are jointly owned by:

An experienced tax, trust and probate solicitor, Ingrid McCleave.  She has worked for many of the major legal and accountancy practices over the years. Ingrid is responsible for the legal services side of the businesses. And

Stephen Pett is also a director and he has vast experience in both legal planning work and was previously an independent financial adviser for many years, adding a helpful insight into the confusing world of financial products (in which we are not involved). Indeed, a very high percentage of our clients are introduced by financial advisers and accountants – and the odd solicitor.

Amongst our publications are Inheritance Tax Secrets, Asset Protection Secrets and Legal Planning.

The two directors are supported by a strong team with client service as its’ core value.
