John Rouse

Private Client

John Rouse at Lodders Solicitors in Stratford, Warwickshire

Short bio:

I am a partner in Lodders’ Private Client team.

I specialise in advising business owners, farmers and high net worth individuals on estate planning including their wills, LPAs, personal tax, structuring their business, trusts and bloodline planning. I often act for different generations of the same family which helps maintain stability and a consistent approach for the family.

I enjoy working with clients and their advisers to put in place appropriate planning.  I like to build relationships with my clients so that I can understand them their family and business, their priorities and outlook and provide advice appropriate for them.  Making that connection and becoming that trusted business adviser and friend gives me a real buzz.

I am currently chairman of the Kenilworth & District Agricultural Society, past chairman and board member of Coventry & Warwickshire First, under Sherriff of Warwickshire and a Committee member of the Warwickshire Farmers Ball.
