Sallyann Short

Senior Associate

I specialise in estate planning, including Wills and Inheritance Tax Planning, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Trusts and estate administration.

I routinely deal with high net worth estates and complex estates, in particular families with agricultural holdings, businesses and non-UK domiciled individuals, splitting my time equally between them.

Before joining Buckles in December 2015, I headed up the local private client practice of a leading law firm in Cambridge. Prior to qualifying as a solicitor in 2006, I was an independent financial adviser and one of a select group of solicitors who hold the Financial Planning Diploma.

My main drive is to look after my clients, keeping them at the heart of what I do. I provide no-nonsense jargon-free advice. I also provide training to professional firms in and around the local area.

My train obsessed 3-year-old is the focus of all my spare time. I have no idea what is going on in the world of entertainment unless it involves Thomas the Tank Engine or Peppa Pig. However, I occasionally get to watch a movie that doesn’t involve the aforementioned characters.
