Christopher Parker TEP

Christopher Parker became a partner in January 2014, having joined the firm in April 2012. He heads up the firm’s Wills & Probate Department. He is a practising Barrister with over 25 years’ experience in Chancery work, having been called to the Bar by the Inner Temple in 1984. He is a member of and examiner for the Society of Trust and Estate Planners (STEP).

His experience has been gained mainly, though not exclusively, in non-contentious work: all aspects of advising and drafting on such matters as the creation of wills, trusts and settlements with associated tax planning, the construction of trusts, wills and charities, powers of attorney and court of protection, probate and the administration of trusts and estates, real and personal property, landlord and tenant, partnerships, companies and pension schemes. Contentious work: bringing, defending and settling claims and making applications to the court up to and including the hearing.

Christopher Parker is a co-author of the chapter on Categories of Trust in Tolley’s Administration of Trusts. He wrote the chapter on the joint ownership of chattels, stocks and shares, bank and building society accounts in Tottel’s Practitioner’s Guide to Joint Property and writes case notes for the Wills & Trusts Law Reports endorsed by STEP as well as occasional articles and lectures on related issues.
