Butcher & Barlow LLP is noted for its niche expertise in estate planning, inheritance tax mitigation, and related agricultural work for farmers, although the team also advises on the full spectrum of wills, estates, and tax matters. Practice head Christopher Hopkins specialises in trusts and long-term care planning. Mike Bracegirdle covers succession planning, while Philip Jennings and Samuel Dale are key contacts regarding Court of Protection work. Following solicitor Jessica Shore‘s departure in June 2021, the agricultural side of the practice was strengthened after Tim Bailey joined from Bowcock & Pursaill in September 2021.
