Dawn Moir

Partner (TEP)

Get to know me...

I have been assisting clients with all Private Client matters since qualifying in 2000. I joined Goughs as head of their Private Client department in 2003 and became a partner in 2004.

Whilst I support my team with all aspects of estate planning and estate administration, my particular areas of expertise are later life planning & support, and trust creation & administration, including all things tax. I represent many clients in a professional capacity as a deputy or trustee and I enjoy being able to make their lives easier whilst getting to know them on a much more personal level.

Testimonials from clients

My greatest achievement

I am proud of the fact that I have successfully pursued my legal career, becoming a Partner of a strong, client-focused law firm and personally being reputable in my chosen area of law, whilst also being the best Mum I can possibly be to my children and seeing them grow into confident and happy young adults.

From a professional standpoint, the excellent client feedback I have received has resulted in me once again being ranked as a ‘Key Lawyer’ by the prestigious Legal 500 legal directory.

What I like about working for Goughs

I joined Goughs back in 2003 because they appeared to be a firm where all employees were valued and given every opportunity to develop. This was very true and has continued to be a key focus of the firm. The overall skill set of the firm has continued to develop and grow which means the variety of work is very rewarding and challenging. I am proud to say it is a very friendly and welcoming firm to be a part of.
