Georgia, who qualified as a solicitor in 2019, is supervised by Fiona Ashworth. She joined the TSP Wills and Estates team in December 2020. Based in our Colchester office Georgia advises clients on a range of private client matters including Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Probate, Court of Protection, Trusts, Declarations of Trust and transfers of property.

Georgia, who is local to the area, studied for her GCSE’s in Spain but returned to the UK to study for her law qualifications. She completed her Law Degree at Anglia Ruskin University before completing her Legal Practice Course at BPP University. Prior to qualifying as a solicitor Georgia worked as a Paralegal on a broad range of private client and dispute resolution matters.

She says “I am a family orientated person and that is why I enjoy this area of work. People usually come to me to talk about upsetting situations and I do my best to deal with this by coming up with a positive solution that meets their requirements.”

Georgia is fluent in Spanish and in her spare time she enjoys cycling, running, swimming and is currently raising money for Sarcoidosis UK a charity close to home.

Thompson Smith and Puxon has, for a number of years, been recommended by the Legal 500 in this practice area. In 2022/23 the Legal 500 said: Thompson Smith and Puxon‘s group is based in Colchester and Clacton-on-Sea. During 2021, the team acted for a varied client roster in the business and the agricultural sphere. The firm has long-standing and strong relationships with the regional rural community and has a substantial portfolio of agricultural clients. Fiona Ashworth leads a team, which has strong expertise in lifetime and succession planning work. Clients describe Robert Ashworth as ‘excellent, patient and thorough’, and Aileen Hirst is a key team member. Senior associate Nicola Healy joined from Tees Law in 2022.

In 2021/2022 the Legal 500 said: Thompson Smith and Puxon’s wills and estates practice is highly prominent in the agriculture sector; its recent workload in this space has included advice to clients on farming family successions, high-value estate administrations and tax-related issues. Fiona Ashworth and Robert Ashworth are both members of the Agricultural Law Association, and along with Aileen Hirst, are members of the Tendring Hundred Farmers Association and Suffolk Agricultural Association. Beyond work for agricultural clients, the practice is highlighted for its advice to business owners and high-net-worth individuals on lifetime and succession planning. Elsewhere, the team’s other areas of expertise include Court of Protection deputyship matters, powers of attorney and contested wills.
