Carol Ward

Senior Associate


Career & Experience

Carol is a Senior Associate in our Private Client team who can advise individuals and families on strategic tax and succession planning through the generations.

Carol has worked with estate owners, farmers and high net-worth clients throughout her career as a solicitor and has a keen understanding of their legal needs and how to help them achieve their goals.

Carol regularly drafts Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney for her clients and advises them on the creation of trusts, both during their lifetime and under their Wills.

Carol’s knowledge of landed estate matters means she can help clients manage estates whether they are privately owned or in a trust. She can offer clients her experience of dealing with applications under the Variation of Trusts Act 1958 and the creation of a Heritage Maintenance Fund as part of long-term tax planning.

Clients also seek Carol’s advice on all aspects of administering an estate, especially when dealing with complex issues and highly valuable or sentimentally important assets.

Away from the office, Carol enjoys seeking out new culinary experiences with her husband, both at home and abroad, and she seeks to balance this out by keeping fit through a mixture of running and Pilates.
