About Phillip Bolton

I studied at BBP Law School in London following which I completed my legal training and qualified at a London firm. Following my qualification, I moved to a well-regarded regional practice before joining Goughs in May 2013. I joined Goughs as a Solicitor and rapidly progressed to Associate and then Partner in 2016.

I am a Partner and Head of the Private Wealth Team at the firm. My practice encompasses all aspects of private client work, with a particular interest in complex Wills, wealth preservation, tax mitigation, and estate planning. I have also had significant experience in advising on agricultural and farming estate planning matters.

I am also a Legal 500 recommended lawyer, the Partner in charge of the Corsham office, and the Deputy Head of the Private Client Department.

What I like about working for Goughs

I very much enjoy being a Partner at Goughs. My role enables me to spend time advising clients on interesting and complex private client matters. I also have significant management responsibilities and I enjoy assisting my colleagues with their work and mentoring junior members of the firm. I really enjoy taking part in the day-to-day management of the firm.
