Private Client


Head of Private Client/Associate Director


Kerri has a passion for delivering the highest quality of service to clients and prides herself on being intuitive to the needs of each individual.
Kerri joined Greenwoods in March 2015. She trained with a large national law firm, qualifying into the private client area in 2007. Kerri was subsequently promoted to Associate and remained at her first firm until making the move to Greenwoods.

Kerri is based in our Peterborough office and advises on a broad spectrum of matters including the preparation of Wills, tax and succession planning, the formation and administration of trusts, the administration of estates and lasting and enduring powers of attorney.

Kerri also has a wealth of experience in advising professional and lay Deputies, making applications to the Court of Protection and acting on behalf of clients who lack mental capacity. This includes elderly clients with dementia, adults with acquired brain injuries and children with birth injuries or conditions.

Kerri enjoys the opportunity to develop lasting relationships with individual clients and families. As a result she better understands their needs and wishes and can help them to successfully achieve their aims. Kerri applies her excellent technical knowledge and creative thinking skills to each different scenario to ensure the best outcome is achieved.

Kerri passed her STEP Diploma in Trusts and Estates in December 2012 and is a fully qualified member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners. Kerri is currently studying sign language and recently passed British Sign Language (BSL) level 1.
