Emma Needham

Solicitor
Wills, Probate and Estate Administration

What’s your area of expertise?

I work in the private client department and specialise in Wills, probate and estate administration. I also administer elderly client affairs under lasting powers of attorney.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

I have always enjoyed interacting with people and their families and I get to do this in all aspects of my work in the private client department; from helping families plan the future in their Will, assisting those who have lost the ability to manage their affairs on their own, through to helping families in the difficult time of dealing with a bereavement in the family and administering their estate.

What makes you tick?

As well as working with families, I enjoy the intellectual challenge that comes from Will drafting and estate planning, and the diversity of situations that we have to deal with. Outside of work I’m a keen cyclist and can be spotted cycling around the beautiful Dorset countryside with friends during the weekend. I’ve completed many rides for charitable causes and enjoy the personal challenge this sets along with the occasional local race, which satisfies my competitive nature. I am also a member of our Social and Charity Committee who work hard to fundraise for local Dorset charities.
