About Scott

I head up the firm’s specialist private wealth disputes team. I have particular expertise in cases involving allegations of lack of testamentary capacity, undue influence, want of knowledge and approval, and claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.

I also advise charity clients on a wide range of matters and I have advised charities as personal representatives and beneficiaries of contested estates. I work closely with clients to resolve complex disputes in a cost effective and efficient manner. This often includes using alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, such as mediation. I am experienced in dealing with cases in both the High Court and Court of Protection.

I live in Surrey with my partner and enjoy spending time with my daughters as well as most sports, especially football and golf.
