Biz-Care is a short-term, easy-in/easy-out employment law rescue package to support business owners and HR managers with bespoke, and current legal advice and guidance during the COVID-19 crisis.
We appreciate that crisis management combined with cash flow issues, adds extra strain to making decisions about your workforce. If not managed properly, knee-jerk or panicked decisions can ultimately end up with you in an Employment Tribunal. This is something we are committed to helping you avoid.
Sarah is an Associate Solicitor with over 10 years experience advising families about Wills, Trusts, Estate Administration, Lasting Powers of Attorney and issues concerning mental capacity and care.
As well as being an experienced solicitor, Sarah is also a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioner (STEP) and holder of a STEP Diploma in Trusts and Estates. STEP is the leading worldwide professional body for practitioners in the field of trusts and estates. Full members of STEP are the most experienced and senior practitioners in their field.
Sarah acts for a wide range of clients, taking the time to get to know them so that her advice is tailored specifically to their unique situation and needs. As addressing the legal issues are often only one part of the bigger picture, Sarah routinely collaborates with professionals in other disciplines, such as accountants and financial advisors to ensure that her clients receive a holistic service and are able to lay the best possible foundations, legally and financially, for themselves and their families in the years to come.
Owing to her experience and technical expertise, Sarah is instructed in relation to many of the more complicated and technical matters dealt with by our team, including estates with business and/or agricultural assets. This also makes Sarah exceptionally well placed to provide succession planning advice to those wanting to minimise their Inheritance Tax liability and plan for the passing of their business and other assets to the next generation.
Outside of work, Sarah is involved with the Northumberland business and tourism community and assists in the running of her family’s guesthouse in Alnwick. She can often be found on a weekend serving breakfasts to guests, before heading out to enjoy the Northumberland coast and countryside!
