Helen is a Senior Associate in our private client team.

She specialises in helping families to implement bespoke succession plans and administer complex estates, advising on matters such as succession and inheritance tax planning, trusts, wills and probate and Lasting Powers of Attorney.

Acting for high-net-worth individuals, business families and farming families, Helen enjoys working with clients’ other trusted advisors to identify their intentions, needs and options. She then assists clients to make the necessary arrangements to ensure that their family wealth is protected and passed on as intended.

Helen qualified as a solicitor in 2011 and has a strong background in dealing with complex estates that include business, rural and foreign assets. She particularly enjoys working alongside colleagues in our other legal teams, such as litigation and corporate, to provide a joined-up approach to resolving issues for clients and ensuring the smooth progression of their cases.

Helen has been recognised by The Legal 500 and is a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and Association of Lifetime Lawyers. She sits on the STEP Yorkshire Committee and is a member of the STEP Business Families Special Interest Group, as well as a Trustee of AMP, a youth music charity.

Helen joined Brabners in 2023 and is based in our Leeds office.
