David is an Associate at Gardner Leader in the Inheritance Protection team. He is based at our Thatcham office.

David joined Gardner Leader in 2007 as a paralegal before undertaking his training with the firm and qualifying into the Dispute Resolution team in 2010. David later moved to Gardner Leader’s Inheritance Protection team in 2014. He became an associate on 1 July 2016.

As part of the Inheritance Protection team, David specialises in the preparation of Wills, Probate and Estate Administration of both taxable and non-taxable estates for a wide range of clients. David also advises upon and prepares Lasting Powers of Attorney and Deputyship applications to the Court of Protection.

David also advises those clients who have specific needs in relation to dealing with their digital assets, such as social media and e-mail accounts, online banking and shopping and online gaming. With so much of our lives now based ‘online’ rather than ‘offline’, this is a rapidly growing area which more and more clients are seeking advice upon.

Having also worked as part of Gardner Leader’s Contentious Probate team, David has the additional benefit of being able to advise clients where there may be a risk of potential claims against their estates and recommend possible steps they can take to reduce such risks.

Outside of work, David is a keen musician and plays Solo Cornet for Watership Brass (the Newbury Town Band) and Soprano Cornet for the Pangbourne and District Silver Band.
