Karen Miller

I’m a partner in the private client department and I head up the Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning team, during my career I have worked with some of the country’s leading experts in inheritance tax. 

I help clients plan for their futures and their families.  I am an inheritance tax planning and trust specialist and I advise a wide range of clients on strategies to protect their assets.  I am able to tailor my advice to each client’s particular needs and the dynamics of their family. 


My work typically includes:

  • Advising clients on succession and strategies to protect their assets and provide for their families, especially vulnerable family members, in the most tax efficient way.
  • Identifying tax mitigation opportunities and variations.
  • Preparing Wills, including trusts for asset protection and tax mitigation.
  • Creating, varying, and winding up trusts.
  • Dealing with trust registration.
  • Preparing Lasting Powers of Attorney for personal and business decisions. 
  • Advising and preparing declarations of trusts in relation to land


I am sympathetic and listen carefully to my clients to understand what they want to achieve, which is, sometimes, not what they initially thought, in these cases I can then offer tailor-made solutions to meet my client’s goals.

I am a full member of The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, which reinforces my expertise and knowledge in the above fields. 

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my young family (2 very lively boys!) When I have the energy I enjoy yoga, running and exploring the wonderful North Devon countryside in which I grew up.


{Karen Miller is extremely experienced and knowledgeable of her field of practice but also of the local market in Devon. Karen’s extremely approachable nature and ease with which to deal with the firm has impressed the mutual clients who I have referred for legal work.
