Emily Robertson


Having gained four years’ experience in Private Client work, Emily joined Burgess Mee to grow the firm's Private Client practice.

Emily is a private client specialist and advises on a wide range of matters. She is experienced in dealing with wills and tax planning, trusts, estate administration and dealing with the Court of Protection.

Emily is experienced in dealing with high-net-worth clients including clients with complex asset structures. She has advised clients with complex commercial and agricultural assets.

After achieving a 2:1 in her undergraduate degree in Law at Newcastle University she completed her postgraduate qualification at the University of Law receiving a Commendation. She is working towards her STEP qualification having completed the Administration of Estates, Administration of Trusts and Estates and Trust Taxation modules. Emily is in the process of completing her final STEP Exam in Advanced Will Drafting. She hopes to become STEP qualified by the end of the year.

Emily has provided comments to the media, including the Financial Times, on tax planning.

Emily prides herself on providing empathetic and practical advice to clients. Wills, Trusts and Probate can be very complex and technical, and it is important for clients to have simplified and transparent advice.

I was enormously impressed with Emily. She is intelligent, competent and immediately confirms that you are in safe hands.

I cannot praise Emily enough for her; thorough drafting of my will, her easy personal charm throughout the process, and her general legal excellence.

She is highly personable and an excellent communicator and clearly loves the area she works in. She is also very thorough and efficient, for example pushing through and co-ordinating meetings with my financial/tax advisor.

Outside of work, Emily is an avid reader, citing her greatest achievement as reading 100 books in 2021. This year she is up to 58 and counting!
