I have been involved in complex pension advice for over 30 years, investment advice for over 20 years and long-term care advice for over 15 years. I have been offering advice, and expert reports, on pensions and divorce for over 20 years and been involved in pension transfer advice for over 25 years.

In August 1993, I set up a Financial Services Department for a 200-year-old firm of regional solicitors. I ran this department until January 1999. During this time, I obtained substantial experience in relation to pensions and other financial aspects of matrimonial settlements.

I was one of the first IFAs to obtain Law Society authorisation as a qualified person and was the first North-West based IFA authorised in Corporate Pensions.

In October 2009, I attended the Resolution IFA Financial Planning and Divorce course. I remain an Affiliate Member of Resolution.
