Conall is an experienced Fellow of both the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and Agricultural Law Association having started his legal career in 2004. Although he specialises in agricultural  private client matters, he also assists non-agricultural clients with their private client matters. His area of expertise is in the preparation of Wills, full estate administration (both testate and intestate), Lasting Powers of Attorney, Trusts, Inheritance Tax Planning and Court of Protection work.

He is also a fully accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly and the Society of Estate and Trust Practitioners (STEP).

In 2004 Conall joined a law firm in Cornwall as a trainee Legal Executive, he then moved across the border to Exeter, working for ten years in the Private Banking department of one of the big five national banks, where he dealt with complex estates, either due to their value or the issues involved. He then returned to practice in working for another law firm in the East Devon area.

As he feels it is very important to be able to fully understand matters effecting his rural clients, to gain a better understanding he is able to visit clients at their farms.

He hopes that he is able to put clients at ease, guiding them through his area of the law, which sometimes can be daunting, or in the case of Inheritance Tax, with the various reliefs and exemptions can seem a minefield.

In 2017 he was independently rated by Three Best Rated as one of the top 3 Estate Planning legal professionals in Exeter.

Outside of work Conall enjoys walking, travelling and socialising with friends and family.
