About Us

Bio and Mission Statement

I have been a professional planner and project director throughout my career, in a variety of industries and roles, including 10 years with world’s largest media company. My migration to the estate planning sector coincided with my arrival in Asia in 2013. Having made the leap of faith to become an expat myself, I fully appreciate that some area’s of life planning require professional expertise.

People work a lifetime to amass an estate, not just monetary or property assets, but personal and emotive ones too. As a will writer I work to ensure that your legacy is passed on to the people you wish to benefit. As an expat, you will often be caught between residency and domicile in more than one jurisdiction and your life’s work has tax obligations, but these can be met whilst retaining the integrity of your wishes and wealth for your family. Acting as a UK certified will draftsman allows me to help people ensure that their lifetime acquirement of wealth and personal items benefit the people they intend.

Operating across Asia from Cambodia, I undertake ongoing professional development in both the UK and internationally. When I am not helping people plan their legacies, I am a keen sportswoman often found on badminton, netball and rugby pitches, swimming pools and gym floors all over Phnom Penh. I also take an active lead in the business community in Cambodia, as a committee member of the British Chambers of Commerce and hosting network and welcome events for people new to this fascinating country.

Partners – why and who

Every individual’s will and estate planning requirements are unique. Assets may be located around the world with the geographic location determining the applicable succession and taxation law.

The complexity of our clients estates requires local expertise – that may be local to the country they currently call home or to their home nation.

Testimonials

"Cindy is knowledgeable, approachable, incredibly helpful, and highly professional. She helped me to understand the implications of my requests and was always on hand to offer guidance and support. All in all an excellent service."

"For various reasons, my situation turned out to be quite complicated and I needed two wills (as advised by UK tax specialist) to keep my English and Cambodian assets completely separate. Cindy was able to work through all of that with me and I am confident that I now have everything properly covered."

"It was a pleasure to work with Cindy and her team! Even though planning for one’s own death is a project we all can easily put off, it removed an area of stress in my life. I no longer had to wonder if certain people would be taken care of, or where my money would go. Cindy and I worked through the process and she asked a lot of thought provoking questions. The first draft helped me think a second layer down, and made the will more complete. We finalised with her lawyer, signed, witnessed and put away in a safe place, letting my executor know exactly where to find it. I do not hesitate to recommend Cindy’s services."

"Cindy made the process of making a Will painless and efficient which we really appreciated. She was sensitive to avoid putting pressure or hassle to complete the Will quickly which allowed us to consider everything in our own time. Best of all, Cindy's professional support and thorough and clear explanation of the laws pertaining to our situation were very helpful. We would look forward to working with Cindy again on documents personal to our family."
