Adam is a Senior Associate Solicitor in our Private Client department based in our Yeovil office.

Adam was originally a primary school teacher, teaching 8 and 9 year olds. On choosing to change career, he completed the legal conversion course at The College of Law Guildford qualifying in September 2007 and has worked as a Private Client solicitor in Dorset and Somerset ever since.

He joined Battens in 2020 bringing with him excellent relationships with local professionals including estate agents, financial advisors and accountants.

Adam advises and specialises in:

  • The preparation of Wills for both individuals and couples alike considering the personal circumstances of each client to tailor unique and personal documents;
  • The preparation and registration of Lasting Powers of Attorney and registration of existing Enduring Powers of Attorney;
  • The administration of both simple and complex estates including intestacies;
  • The severance of joint tenancies;
  • Declarations of Trust;
  • Court of Protection applications

Adam strives to guide his clients through what are potentially very challenging, difficult and personal decisions but always prides himself on trying to make their experience as comfortable as possible by communicating throughout in a friendly and approachable way.

His gregarious nature allows him to build strong professional connections with his clients meaning that many return for further assistance or recommend him to family members and friends.

Adam has had a number of notable client highlights in his career, including successfully advising an elderly couple to finally tie the knot, mostly for love (but also for tax reasons) and a client that needed advice on how to deal with their Oscar statuette in their Will.
