Kathleen Docherty

I assist people with succession planning and executry administrations by advising them on a range of private client matters including wills, powers of attorney and assiting Executors with managing estates.

I enable individuals to create tailored succession plans and guide families through the legal administrative process that occurs after the death of a loved one, helping to make a difficult time a little easier.

Recent Activity

I have assisted clients in relation to complex matters including:

  • Managing contentious executry disputes
  • Advising Executors in relation to estates with partial intestacy
  • Tracing members of extended family for intestate estates
  • Calculating Inheritance Tax liabilities for estates with complex legacy structures

I have also guided clients through the process of creating bespoke Wills and granting Powers of Attorney.

I am currently studying towards the first of my STEP Diploma in Trusts and Executries (Scotland) exams.
