Profile/Experience

Kevin hails from Oswestry and qualified as a Solicitor in 1986 after graduating with a Law degree from University College of Wales Aberystwyth, and later passing the Law Society Finals at the College of Law, Chester.

Kevin trained with Longueville & Co and remained there after its merger with John C Gittins in 1988. In 1993 Kevin was made a partner in Longueville Gittins.

He has 32 years experience and specialises in all areas of private client work, particularly drafting wills, Inheritance Tax planning and also deals with estate administrations (many involving significant agricultural property), trusts (some involving landed estates) and also prepares Powers of Attorney.

Kevin belongs to the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners and, being a fluent Welsh speaker, can provide advice in Welsh.

LG Solicitors merged with Lanyon Bowdler in May 2010 and Kevin continued as a partner of the merged firm.

He is a committed fundraiser for Mountain Rescue, and in Oswestry is Vice Chairman of the local branch of the RNLI in which role he helps organise the very well supported Annual Oswestry RNLI Quiz. 

In his spare time Kevin is a keen spectator of rugby and an avid mountain walker (Snowdonia always beckons), and tries to combine both with an active appreciation of a good real ale. Kevin is also interested in History and Politics, Reading and Travel.
