Sonia joined Herrington Carmichael as a Senior Solicitor in the Private Client department, specialising in Wills, Powers of Attorney, Estate Administration, Trusts and Inheritance Tax. Sonia regularly advises clients on Wills and how best to achieve their intentions via the drafting of their Wills. She advises clients on the administration of estates, including foreign assets and business property. Sonia also advises clients on Inheritance Tax and provides her clients with options on how to potentially mitigate their Inheritance Tax liability.
Experience | Key projects
Sonia has 10 years post qualification experience. Sonia has previously helped beneficiaries of an estate where they have had a desire to re-distribute their inheritance by, for example, skipping one generation of the family and passing on wealth to the next in a tax efficient way. She has also assisted clients in relation to Court of Protection deputyship applications and has successfully obtained a deputyship order in respect of personal welfare, which can often be difficult to obtain.
Interests and Hobbies
In her spare time, when Sonia is not entertaining her two children, she enjoys swimming and visiting the gym regularly. She also likes travelling, and her most memorable holiday destination is the Ice Hotel in Sweden, where she was lucky enough to see the Northern Lights. Sonia also enjoys socialising with friends and visiting the theatre.
Thank you for your emails sent both yesterday and today. It feels like a long time since I called in to your office to ask for your help and advice with regards to Ron’s estate. Little did I realise then how much work and expertise would be needed to ensure Ron’s wishes would be fulfilled.
I’m grateful for you making the process so easy, especially bearing in mind we’ve had Covid to contend with along the way. Please accept my grateful thanks for the professional but friendly way Ron’s estate has been dealt with.
From a cheerful greeting at reception to an efficient journey through our requirements. We both felt Sonia did an excellent job.
I’d just like to say thank you for everything Sonia, it has been such a smooth process i haven’t felt stressed or concerned at any point.Your efforts are much appreciated.
