Chris is our Estate Planning Manager. He graduated from Bangor University in 2001 with a degree in psychology, after which he decided to travel. When returning from his travels, he secured a Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) in 2009. He is a full member of STEP (Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners).
Chris’ travels led him to teach English in Istanbul for two years, where he had the honour of teaching the president’s family. Since returning from his travels, Chris has dealt with estate administration at various legal practices, HSBC and for an accountant. The latter two gave him a different view of wills and probate work, but he prefers the traditional solicitor approach. Chris covers the whole range of wills, probate and elderly client work, including powers of attorney. He has particular expertise in dealing with estate administration, intestacies and missing beneficiaries, some of which is quite complex.
Typically, around 90% of Chris’ time is spent carrying out estate planning work.
Chris is recommended in the Legal 500 2023. One of his clients said “Chris Shaw provides excellent attention to detail and will drive forward the administration of estates in an extremely efficient manner.”
Chris is a dementia friend.
