About Dawn Moir

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.

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.

Testimonials from clients

My recent cases

Some of my most rewarding clients are ones where I am personally appointed as a Deputy or Attorney. They typically have no family who can help them or their affairs are extremely complex that they require professional expertise. I have detailed knowledge of the benefit system and the local authority support my clients are entitled to. I am also able to assess capacity and assess risk to make appropriate safeguarding decisions.
