Danny is one of the senior partners in the Private Client Department with considerable experience in tax and succession planning through Wills, trusts and other vehicles.
Danny began his career in 1978, passing Legal Executive and Common Professional exams, and working in the field of probate. In 1988, he joined Gepp Solicitors as a Legal Executive, was admitted as a Solicitor in 1990, and made a Partner in 1991.
Danny is a tax, trusts and estate specialist often brought in by other professionals including accountants, IFAs and other solicitors, who are confident in his practical and straightforward approach. They are secure in the knowledge that he will provide solutions to their clients whilst at the same time strengthening their own relationship with that client.
He is frequently recommended by land agents and agricultural consultants to assist their clients with agricultural property relief and business property relief issues. This has recently resulted in a family being advised, in the final weeks of the widow’s life, to exchange land to achieve an instant saving of tax in the region of £100,000 without the need for a survivorship period.
Danny’s sympathetic approach and technical expertise is second to none and his compassion and sensitivity makes him the ideal person to assist in helping client’s plan for their future.
Danny oversees fee earners and support staff ensuring his clients receive quality advice when they need it.
