Stuart Price


"Stuart Price assisted a high-net-worth client with complex generational tax and trust planning. He has dealt with the client sensitively and professionally at all stages of the process. He has built sufficient trust that other members of the same family have also appointed him to advise on their affairs."

Legal 500 UK 2020

Stuart specialises in UK tax and estate planning, advising individuals and trustees.  He has a particular focus on succession planning, helping clients to protect their wealth for their families or other beneficiaries. 

Stuart is experienced in preparing and advising on bespoke wills, often including will trusts; he also advises on inheritance tax planning, including business property relief and agricultural property relief.

He also has experience advising trustees in relation to the creation, re-structuring or closing of UK trusts in a tax efficient manner.

Stuart advises executors in relation to probate administration, and specialises in providing post-death succession planning to beneficiaries, including the use of deeds of variation.

He also advises clients in relation to mental incapacity, and is experienced in advising on Lasting Powers of Attorney for both property and financial affairs, and for health and welfare.  He also advises families in relation to applications to the Court of Protection, where someone has already lost capacity but decisions still need to be made for them.
