Supporting Consultant

Helen Hamilton


Company & Commercial

Helen’s previous career, spanning 30 years as a Financial Advisor brings a different yet dovetailed approach to the Legal environment. Having given up her advisory permissions to become a Director in a Consultancy firm working with SCW, she provides supporting services focused on building relationships with our valued private clients and Business owners.

Helen’s specialism, as the Supporting Consultant non-solicitor to Stuart Hamilton, lies in the arena of Asset Protection Advice to wealthy clients and business owners, building a close relationship nurtures trust and understanding, essential when discussions centre around family relationships, intergenerational planning and keeping money in the bloodline.

One common wish for many wealthy clients is for their descendants to inherit in a way which provides for their needs whilst offering protection them from themselves and others who would claim from them.

Strategic advice includes tax efficient Will drafting, specialist Trust advice and planning for business succession onto future generations where appropriate. 70% of businesses fail to transition from 1st to 2nd generation but effective planning can vastly reduce this risk.

Outside Work

Helens interests include hill walking in Northumberland and Scotland with her West Highland Terrier.
