Fiona Dodd is a Partner in the Probate, Trusts and Wills Department and has been with Mayo Wynne Baxter since 2003. She works with clients across Sussex.
As a specialist in inheritance and probate law Fiona particularly enjoys administering complex estates and drafting Wills. She often helps clients draw up powers of attorney, and consider how Inheritance Tax will be applied, and frequently acts as a professional Executor or Trustee.
Fiona works with a number of accountants and financial advisers to ensure that her clients get great all round advice when needed, so they can make the right decision for their own situation.
Whether a client comes to Mayo Wynne Baxter because a loved one has died, or because of complicated personal circumstances, Fiona is passionate about supporting them through what can be a distressing time.
Fiona graduated in English Law and French Law from Kings College, London, and La Sorbonne, Paris. Between 1996 and 2000 she completed her solicitor’s training and started practicing with a small high street firm on the outskirts of Brighton. She moved into investment management in London for two and a half years, before returning to Sussex in 2003 to join Mayo Wynne Baxter. Fiona is a member of the Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners (STEP) and sits on the Sussex STEP committee.
Outside of work, Fiona spends time with her family and even tries to cram in a good book when she has the time!
May I take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for a friendly and efficient administration of my mother's estate.
Mr R - Andover
Huge thanks Fiona and Lauren - you were both wonderful with our mother! I can't say enough how professional, yet sensitive you were with her. We are so lucky to have had you both assigned to our family case.
With warmest wishes and heartfelt appreciation.
