Kanika has 13 years experience in the private client sector and provides advice on a wide range of matters including estate planning; inheritance tax mitigation; the creation and administration of trusts; powers of attorney and the administration of estates, including those with foreign property.  Kanika is a member of STEP and has particular expertise in dealing with high net worth individuals and complex matters.

“I am known for my technical knowledge and ability and I am passionate about the work that I do.  I pride myself on dealing with matters promptly and efficiently in order to give my clients a first class level of service.

A Will is one of the most important documents that a person will ever sign during their lifetime and it is the responsibility of the private client advisor to ensure that their client disposes of their estate in exactly the manner they wish to, whilst at the same time balancing often competing issues such as tax mitigation and family sensitivities. 

We live in an age where blended families are common and the norm but this can lead to delicate and sensitive issues that need particular care and advice.  I love nothing more than meeting with clients and getting to know their individual circumstances in order to come up with a tailored plan to meet their needs.  I pride myself on building great relations with my clients and their families with the result that I often act for multiple generations of a family”.
