About Steven

Steven is the Head of our Private Client team in Manchester.

His approach is to identify the issues that matter to his clients, help them understand the threats and opportunities that exist and fit solutions to the issues jointly identified as a result.

He specialises in personal planning for business and family business owners and senior business executives (including Board-level executives of FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 companies).  He often deals with the higher level succession planning needs associated with more complex family arrangements, for example in cases of second and third marriages, and High Net Worth and Ultra High Net Worth clients.

Steven is a full member of the Society of Estate Practitioners (STEP) and a member of the STEP Family Business Special Interest Group.

He also has a keen interest in philanthropy (charitable giving) and help clients to achieve their philanthropic goals.
