In August 2019, Adrian rejoined Wilkes as an Associate Solicitor in our Birmingham Private Client Team.

Adrian, who has been qualified over 11 years, has particular expertise in undertaking tax and estate planning on behalf of clients. He has acted for business owners, shareholders, entrepreneurs and philanthropists during his time in practice.

Having practiced in rural Derbyshire for a period of time, Adrian also has significant experience of providing succession planning and tax advice to farmers and others working in the agricultural community.

As part of the work Adrian undertakes, he prepares wills of varying complexities which often incorporate trusts as well as settlements (lifetime trusts) designed to mitigate inheritance tax and protect/control the inheritance of assets for the next generation.

In terms of post death work, Adrian has administered estates involving businesses, farms, foreign property and settled land and has drawn up deeds of variation.

Adrian is a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) which is regarded as the industry gold standard for leading private client lawyers.

Business Continuity Update – COVID-19

September 2020

To our valued clients and partners,

As the impact of COVID-19 continues to evolve we wanted to take the time to reassure you of the actions we are taking to protect our clients, colleagues and the wider communities, whilst working to maintain our services to you at this time.


Our commitment to you

We are open for business and will continue to provide you with the best service we can in the safest way possible, but in-line with government advice our offices are now closed for face-to-face meetings and all staff are now working from home until further notice.

If you have an appointment scheduled your legal advisor will be in touch shortly to discuss your options, if they haven’t done so already.


Our staff are set up and ready to respond to you as usual. We are working hard to mitigate any disruptions, and will continue to provide you with the legal service and advice you need, delivered with the high-level of service you have come to expect from Wilkes.


If you do experience a slight delay in hearing back from us, please bear with us. We will be in touch.


If you have a general enquiry please call us on 0121 233 4333 or email us at, or contact your normal point of contact.


Thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times. We look forward to returning to normal, with a handshake, as soon as possible.
