Born in the East Midlands and currently based in Kent, Scott is happy to assist clients throughout the UK by remote means, making the best use of technology. Scott can also offer face-to-face appointments, where necessary, in Kent, London and the East Midlands.

Scott qualified in 2013 and went on to build a wealth of experience at several well-known firms in Kent before joining Richard Nelson as a Consultant in January 2022.

Scott’s approach is friendly and down to earth, with a focus on a client-centred experience. Scott builds lasting relationships with clients based on honesty and trust.

Scott is passionate about helping his clients and understands the need for sensitivity and to listen to his clients’ needs at what can be a stressful and upsetting time.

Scott has expertise in the following:

– Wills and Trusts
– Estate planning
– Lasting Powers of Attorney
– Registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney
– Probate and estate administration
– Court of Protection Deputyship Applications for financial affairs and health and welfare
– Other non-contentious Court of Protection Applications e.g. Trustee applications; applications by existing attorneys and deputies
