Introducing Ann Coutts New Director and Head of Private Client department

Ann qualified as a solicitor in 2004 and after working in senior positions at firms in London and the Home Counties joined Backhouse in August 2019 to head the Private Client legal team.

Ann has extensive experience and is passionate about helping her clients in the preparation of their wills, (she holds the STEP advanced certificate in will preparation) lasting powers of attorney, and trusts and estate administration. In particular, as a qualified member of Society of Trust and Estate Practitioner’s (STEP) she helps families to plan for their long term financial future, providing expert advice on how to comply with the often complex law and tax rules surrounding trusts, estates and inheritance tax.   Ann is also a full accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE).

Outside of work, when not running around after her toddler twins, Ann enjoys taking on crazy challenges such as Man v Mountain and triathlons.
