The 'thorough, efficient and reliable' private client department at Thompson Smith and Puxon 'exhibits a high degree of professional experience and capability' with 'a caring and considerate side' and a willingness to 'go the extra mile' in order to 'provide a comprehensive and timely service'. Focus areas include will preparation, probate, trusts, tax and succession planning, registering enduring powers of attorney, and Court of Protection matters, as well as asset preservation relating to long-term residential or nursing care requirements. A large proportion of clients have a business or agricultural background. 'Sharp-minded, sympathetic and hardworking' Fiona Ashworth, who 'has a wealth of experience', leads the practice from the Colchester office and is a main contact for elderly and farming clients.
