Top Ranked Chambers 2022 logo      Legal 500 2022 Recommended Lawyer


I am a partner in the Wills, Trusts & Estates and Succession Planning teams.  My expertise is in:

  • inheritance and capital gains tax planning (including business, agricultural and heritage property);
  • drafting Wills and variations of Wills;
  • drafting and advising in relation to trusts;
  • powers of attorney;
  • declarations of trusts of land; and
  • Estate administration.

I trained at a City firm and now live in Winchester. 

I listen to what my clients want. My clients’ objectives are likely to be a combination of factors such as planning for complicated family circumstances and the protection of family assets from bankruptcy, divorce and tax, especially inheritance tax and capital gains tax. Secondly, I give clear advice in an approachable and efficient manner in response.

I am recorded as a notable practitioner in the Chambers UK High Net Worth Legal Directory 2022.

I am a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).

Thank you very much for your efforts on our behalf in finalising the Wills and LPA’s so quickly. We really appreciate the way you must have worked very hard to get all this finalised before we went away.

Jean and John

Thank you for attending to my mother's estate and doing so in such a quietly efficient and pleasant manner.


Thank you so much for all your help with Mum's estate. You have been a great support at a very difficult time for me and Dad. We really appreciate it.

David Ward

Thank you for the Wills and information. We are more than happy with the work you have done for us and it has been a pleasure to meet you.

Roy and Jill

We were very pleased with the knowledgeable and efficient service from William Hadley - thank you very much. We are comparing this to the protracted and very expensive process of working with a top West End of London firm a few years ago and this was much better. Thank you!
