Hugh Butler is Senior Partner and head of our Private Client department.

Hugh qualified in 1989 before joining Jolliffes in 1996 and becoming a partner in 2000. Hugh has over 30 years’ experience advising clients on the full variety of Private Client work and has a particular interest in high-value and complex estate and trust administration. He acts as a professional executor, trustee and deputy for a number of longstanding clients, and is a member of the Law Society’s probate section.

Hugh is a full member of STEP and has extensive experience in a wide range of Private Client law matters, including:
• wills and estate planning;

• probate and estate administration;
• trust administration;
• tax planning; and
• court of protection applications.

When not at work, Hugh enjoys spending his time sailing, walking and playing the cello (but not necessarily all at the same time).
