Ian Cottam

Trust & Estate Practitioner

I am a qualified Trust and Estate Practitioner who specialises in the administration of high net worth, complex trusts and estates (although I also deal with other aspects of private client work such as wills and tax planning). I've operated at the top level throughout my 20 year career to date including time spent in central London - both in the west end and the city.

I joined Hedges in 2020 and feel excited to be part of such a progressive and forward thinking firm containing such friendly people.


I love to spend my spare time following sport (including supporting Yorkshire County Cricket Club - being originally from Yorkshire myself and being a proud Yorkshireman!).

I love to read - particularly autobiographies of top sports stars as I find the psychology of sport fascinating!

I also love to travel - my trip to New York was an amazing experience - what a large, buzzing and interesting city.

I am a bit of an adrenaline junkie and I enjoy both bungee jumping and skydiving (both of which I have done to raise money for charity). You can't beat a good adrenaline rush! I love bungee jumping and skydiving and Great White Shark cage diving is next on my list!
