What they say

"… knowledgeable, approachable, commercial and super-friendly - an ideal combination in a lawyer."

Legal 500 UK 2020

 Fiona is a private client Senior Associate based in the Horsham office.  She joined the firm when Rawlison Butler merged with DMH Stallard in September 2017.

Fiona specialised in all areas of  private client work including estate administration (probate), wills, trusts, capital taxes and Powers of Attorney.

Fiona has a particular interest in dealing with complex estates and helping to reduce the inevitable stress on executors and beneficiaries of such estates.  Fiona also enjoys working with people with business interests, for example a family business that needs sympathetically passing down the generations. Having come from a farming family herself she very much enjoys working with agricultural clients.

Fiona works closely with Caroline Lowe in relation to all client matters.

Fiona qualified as a solicitor in 2005 and is a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).  Fiona has also successfully completed STEP’s Advanced Certificate in International Succession and Probate.
