Profile

Jan Atkinson

Description

Spear's Review

As head of the private client department at Osbornes Law, Jan Atkinson has over 30 years’ experience advising on wills, estates and trusts work. Her current practice focuses in particular on wealth planning, high-value estate administration, international estates and disputed probate and trusts cases. She tells Spear's that her most rewarding cases involve intricate estate administrations, international probate work, successful Inheritance Act claims and resolving disputed estates.

A registered contentious trust and probate specialist, Atkinson also writes and lectures on wills and inheritance issues and is a member of the executive committee of the Law Society’s private client section. She is also regularly appointed by the Court as an independent administrator to resolve long-running contentious estates.

Adviser Profile

Jan Atkinson cut her teeth as a property lawyer in the City before joining Osbornes Law in 1991. She has since honed specialisms in wills, estates and trusts, and now represents global clients in complex cross-border tax and succession issues and estate disputes.

Now a senior partner at the firm, Atkinson’s niche practice focuses on wealth planning, high value estate administrations, international estates and disputed probate and trusts cases.

Atkinson has a formidable set of expertise, unravelling complex estate administrations with issues such as intervening deaths of beneficiaries and executors, as well as representing clients under the Inheritance Act 1975. She maintains a crucial interface with Osbornes’ family law department and property team, providing specialist tax, trusts and wealth planning assistance to clients.
