A rising young star at law firm Furley Page has become a member of leading professional body the Chartered Institute of Taxation after gaining the highest level tax qualification in the UK.

Award-winning solicitor Alexandra Gordon, who specialises in long-term wealth planning and helping clients to safeguard their assets for future generations, has become a qualified Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) – nationally recognised as the gold standard for tax professionals.

Alexandra, who was named Kent Law Society Junior Lawyer of the Year in 2014, has a wealth of experience in inheritance tax and estate planning and specialises in drafting Wills and Trusts, administering clients’ estates, and preparing Lasting Powers of Attorney.

“Undertaking the CTA course has allowed me to develop my practical skills and a thorough knowledge of all areas of taxation.

“It means I can offer clients comprehensive advice on complex and diverse issues, help them to fully understand the tax implications, and ensure they are up to date on constantly evolving tax laws,” says Alexandra, who is part of Furley Page’s highly regarded Private Client Team.

Harvey Barrett, Partner and Head of Private Client, Trusts and Estates, adds: “The CTA qualification is respected as a mark of technical excellence and professional integrity, which means Alexandra’s clients know they can expect the highest level of tax and legal expertise.”

Alexandra has completed the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) Diploma in Trusts and Estates (England and Wales) and the STEP Advanced Certificate in Will Preparation, and is an Associate Member of the Association of Contentious Trusts and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS). She is also a voluntary legal adviser for the Kent Law Clinic and mentors law students at the University of Kent.
