     Career History ~ Experience ~ Qualifications 

    Martin's Legal Services practice clients now number 400+, and a growing number of Accountants and Financial Advisers are directing their (mostly intestate) clients to his practice. Equally he is always looking to assist such professional introducers by reciprocating business back to them and widening their networking contacts  

    In a career spanning 48 years, Martin has industry-recognised professional qualifications in financial planning, ie Financial Planning Certificates 1, 2 & 3 and the Advanced Financial Planning Certificate, all of the Chartered Insurance Institute, and CEMAP3, a recognised mortgage industry qualification  

    In August and November 2014 he passed further Chartered Insurance Institute examinations in Mortgage Practice, Equity Release and Financial Protection, with the intention of setting up an Equity Release practice for both the public as well as Financial Advisers and Accountants 
    Martin has a variety of business expertise in management accountancy and financial project management, Financial Services Authority (FSA) pension review management, financial services industry training, compliance, systems review and development, product research, para-planning and report-writing 
    In addition, he is qualified by examination as an Associate Member of the Institute of Professional Will Writers. The Institute requires its Associates to undergo regulatory annual professional competence testing, conduct personal supervision of Will attestations, and maintain Professional Indemnity cover of £2.5M
    Martin started his career in the Financial Services industry in 1967 as a Management Accountant in various City companies, implementing VAT and computerised sales ledger accounting systems, and also held Company Secretaryship duties
    In 1979 he became a Financial Consultant, advising both individuals and companies on investments, pensions, life assurance, health products, mortgages and Inheritance Tax planning 
    In the 1980s, as an FSA authorised Independent Financial Adviser, he ran his own mortgage brokerage. He also carried out cash flow projections for firms requiring working capital finance 

    In the mid-2000's, he spent almost 4 years as an Adjudicator with the Financial Ombudsman Service, specialising in the assessment of endowment complaints, before leaving to qualify and set up his own practice as a Will Writer and Estate Planning Legal Specialist in March 2009

    In July 2010 Martin set up his Business Consultancy practice to advise start-up businesses. In addition he provides a problem-solving service for young firms on any aspects of their working operations. This can be sales and marketing, finance, administration and accounting, IT, premises, plant and equipment, staff and employment, industry regulations and compliance, or business advice in general

    He enjoys entertaining and informing audiences through presentations around Essex on the topics of Wills, Probate and Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Business Solutions and Successful Networking
