Nicola Waldman | Partner 020 7874 8565

Legal 500 2017 recommended lawyerI trained at Ellis Peirs and Young Jackson and qualified in 1989; I have 25 years’ experience in private client work. I have spent virtually all of my career in private practice, although I spent a brief period working for two charities and also a firm of independent financial advisers.

I deal with complex wills, all aspects of trust and estate administration (including estates with a foreign element), preparation and registration of powers of attorney, wealth protection and planning. I have been appointed and acted as executor and trustee on many occasions. I much enjoy this area of the law and I am described as having a ‘very friendly professional style’.
