Andrew Neal


I qualified in 2010 into one of London’s top private client teams before joining Godwins in 2011, where I became a full Member (partner) of the LLP on 1st April 2015. Specialising in wills, probate, trusts, tax planning, powers of attorney and the affairs of the elderly, I’ve built up a large and varied client base, which includes many clients in London. I particularly enjoy giving clients advice that brings practical solutions to problems and am adept at understanding a variety of family and commercial situations, often advising multi-generations of families. Many of my clients are a result of referrals from other professionals.
