Christine Hanson (formerly Baigent)
Private Client Services, Asset & Wealth Protection
Christine has lived and worked in Hampshire and Surrey for over 25 years and is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and a Professional Deputy. She initially trained with Metcalfe Solicitors in Bordon, Hampshire moving to become Head of Private Client at Tanner & Taylor in Farnham, Surrey.
Christine is a specialist in what is usually called ‘Private Client’ work. This essentially covers Wills, Probate, Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection work, all of which can be relevant to just about everyone regardless of their age or their circumstances.
People do have different needs. For example, if you are reading this as a young parent, you may be juggling work with numerous other demands on your time and so Christine is always happy to arrange appointments in the evening or she does home visits if it’s easier for you.
Or perhaps you, or someone you know is elderly. Then your main concern may be that the whole experience of visiting a firm of solicitors can be daunting and quite possibly, if mobility is an issue, akin to planning a polar expedition. In those circumstances, Christine is happy to come to you – a cup of tea and a chat is usually all it takes to establish a relaxed atmosphere and get the job done.
Christine’s prime focus is always to make sure that the advice she gives is completely understood and that any actions taken properly reflect your intentions and protect your best interests. She is genuinely interested in each and every one of her clients and loves getting to know them and hearing all their stories. She prides herself on establishing relationships that focus on the clients needs and not on profit. Christine is passionate about her work as she knows she can help her clients and that Couchman Hanson celebrate traditional values of a family-based solicitors that resonates with her clients old and new.
