About Claire

I am a Partner in the Wills, Probate & Trusts Department, but also cover some areas in the Family Department. I worked as a Registered General Nurse for many years before studying law. I deal with Wills, Probate, Administration of Estates and Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney, and I specialise in contentious probate, where there are disputes over estates. This can involve disputes over Trusts for Land, which overlap with my work on financial issues on relationship breakdowns. I try to listen to my clients’ individual circumstances and look at achieving not only a fair resolution to disputes, but one that is practical and workable.

Out of work I have two children who are still in full time education. I enjoy skiing, reading, and country walks.

About June

I joined Hanne & Co’s Wills, Probate and Trusts department in 1998. I have since specialised in the drafting of wills, applications for probate, the administration of estates and court of protection work including lasting powers of attorney, registration of lasting powers of attorney and appointment of deputies. I commenced training with the firm as a Solicitor in January 2011.

I participate from time to time in schemes for free wills run by charities. If clients have difficulty with access to our premises, I can visit them at home. Out of work I am a Trustee at Wandsworth Bereavement Service. I enjoy meeting up with family and friends, walking and crosswords.

About Jenny

After gaining a 2.1 (Hons) BSc in Psychology at Nottingham University I went on to complete the GDL and LPC at The College of Law; gaining a Distinction on the LPC in 2010. Following my graduation I gained a Paralegal role at a law firm in Surrey which gave me exposure to Probate, Family and Property Law. I started at Hanne & Co as a Paralegal at the beginning of 2011 and began my Training Contract that same summer. I qualified into the probate department and currently advise on all aspects of Wills, Probate & Trusts.

I enjoy performing music in my spare time as well as keeping fit with Zumba!
