Head of Private Client
Liora’s expertise lies in Private Client work; the areas of Administration of Estates, Probate, Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs), creating Deputyships and Wills. Losing someone close to you is a difficult time and you need a sympathetic person who is there to look after your needs. Liora brings that sympathetic ear and a very detailed approach to ensure you, the customer, retains the maximum from the unfortunate loss of a loved-one whilst reducing your tax liability.
An expertise Liora offers is in the creation of Statutory Wills. A Statutory Will is different from a standard Will and requires expert knowledge as it is there to protect a person who lacks capacity. This lack of capacity can arise through medical conditions such as dementia or head injury. The Court of Protection is authorised to make such a Will but it requires expert knowledge as the process can often be long and arduous as there are many forms to complete with medical and witness evidence to gather. The need for a Statutory Will can also arise from clinical negligence. This is where Jonathan Dees and Liora can work, on your behalf, very closely.
Liora has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in Contentious Probate and has successfully acted for clients who wish to dispute the terms of a Will, the execution of the Will or the distribution of the Estate, working closely with Berlad Graham’s Raanan Berlad.
Liora brings with her a wealth of experience in advising charities over many years and has a particular expertise in cross-border Private Client; so, if you are dealing with two legal jurisdictions Liora’s expertise would be very useful to you.
Liora was a co-founder and Chair of the Israeli Business Club in London and is prominent in the Israeli community. Liora followed her BA and MA with her LLB qualification as a solicitor in the UK.
