Alan Brown - Ashtons Legal

Within: Personal tax, trusts and probate: elsewhere in East Anglia

Ashtons Legal's Bury St Edmunds office is home to a deep bench of talented private client lawyers led by deputy CEO and head of individual services Alan Brown who is 'very knowledgeable on all matters, straight-talking and easy to work with; he goes the extra mile'. The practice acts for professional, academic and agricultural clients across Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. It has niche expertise in supporting vulnerable clients and also in French law matters, with Matthew Cameron ('very responsive and very efficient') handling property sales, inheritance issues, wills and tax for clients with assets in France. The strong team of associates includes Elizabeth Dunn who ‘explains the options in a relaxed and easy to understand way'; Faye Stolls, who 'knows her subject well and is easy  to work with'; and Teresa Callender, who is 'extremely approachable, friendly and efficient'.
