Julija graduated from Leeds Beckett University with a First Class Honours degree in Law in 2018, during which she received the prestigious “Leeds Law School Prize Awarded for the Best Overall Performance” for the final year of her undergraduate studies due to her academic excellence.

Following completion of her Law degree, Julija joined Wellers Hedleys in October 2018 as a part-time Administrative Assistant based in the Butler House office in Surrey, where she primarily assisted the Town, Parish and Community Council department in carrying out day-to-day tasks.

Alongside her role at Wellers Hedleys, Julija also embarked on her part-time Legal Practice Course with a Masters in Law at the University of Law in Guildford, for which she secured the “Law First Postgraduate Scholarship”. Julija successfully completed her postgraduate studies with an overall Distinction in 2020, following which she was offered and accepted a Trainee Solicitor role in the firm’s London office, which Julija started in September 2020.

During her first seat, Julija trained in the Residential Property department, working closely with Luke Roberts, a property solicitor in the London office, and his team. During this time, she worked on various new build and non-new build conveyancing transactions. Being involved in numerous cases deepened her knowledge and understanding of how to successfully handle a variety of tasks for clients to achieve their objectives effectively.

In her spare time, Julija particularly enjoys spending time outdoors, attending the gym to stay fit, cooking and listening to podcasts about human psychology and history.

After completing her LLB (Hons) in Business Law at Guildhall University where she studied company law, taxation and related subjects, Ingrid studied at the Inns of Court School of Law and was called to the Bar in 1995, specialising in European Competition Law and International Trade.

 Ingrid’s first position was at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Edinburgh where she worked as a corporate tax senior in the Corporate Tax and Life Insurance Tax Department of the Financial Services Division as a tax advisor for large banks and insurance companies. This involved working as part of a team of three looking at tax planning strategies for multi-national insurance companies, leading often to international corporate restructuring for tax purposes. Ingrid was initially recruited to prepare a report to be disclosed during a tax investigation by the Revenue involving the tax treatment under the pre anti avoidance legislation of a box option, which was the underlying investment for the insurance companies guaranteed income bond.  

Ingrid was then asked to join Arthur Andersen (the 4th largest accountancy firm worldwide at the time) where she managed the tax compliance for a portfolio of clients which included a number of investment companies and a Japanese bank with branches in England.  

During her period at Arthur Andersen she co-wrote the Tax Guide to Europe, an internal publication that was sent to Andersen’s clients. This involved writing a chapter on each European country, summarising the corporate tax, income tax, indirect tax and capital taxes of each country. 

Ingrid then transferred to Treasury within Andersen’s (due to her prior experience of derivative instruments) where she worked as part of a team designing derivative products which banks and insurance companies used as the underlying investments for the products they sold their clients. 

Ingrid then moved to Numerica (the 15th largest UK accountancy firm at the time) as a Tax Manager focusing on owner managed businesses. There she was Head of Corporate Tax Planning and Stamp Duty. She also continued working in International Tax drafting reports for overseas clients with business interest in the UK. This involved proactive tax planning on behalf of the individual and the company, often involving international relocation and restructuring.   

In 2004 Ingrid converted to become a solicitor and has worked predominantly in law firms after a short spell lecturing Law at Brighton University. During her career as a solicitor Ingrid has worked as a Senior Associate and Head of Tax and Private Client in a Legal 500 firm in Central London.

 Ingrid regularly lectures on Trust and Taxation and Business Succession courses for the Society of Will Writers and The Association of Accountants as well as to a number of group of financial advisers.

 Ingrid initially studied piano and composition at Trinity College of Music in London and then went on to teach piano and woodwind at Eastbourne College and until recently, whilst living in Edinburgh, Ingrid gave regular piano recitals at the Edinburgh Society for Musicians.

Julija graduated from Leeds Beckett University with a First Class Honours degree in Law in 2018, during which she received the prestigious “Leeds Law School Prize Awarded for the Best Overall Performance” for the final year of her undergraduate studies due to her academic excellence.

Following completion of her Law degree, Julija joined Wellers Hedleys in October 2018 as a part-time Administrative Assistant based in the Butler House office in Surrey, where she primarily assisted the Town, Parish and Community Council department in carrying out day-to-day tasks.

Alongside her role at Wellers Hedleys, Julija also embarked on her part-time Legal Practice Course with a Masters in Law at the University of Law in Guildford, for which she secured the “Law First Postgraduate Scholarship”. Julija successfully completed her postgraduate studies with an overall Distinction in 2020, following which she was offered and accepted a Trainee Solicitor role in the firm’s London office, which Julija started in September 2020.

During her first seat, Julija trained in the Residential Property department, working closely with Luke Roberts, a property solicitor in the London office, and his team. During this time, she worked on various new build and non-new build conveyancing transactions. Being involved in numerous cases deepened her knowledge and understanding of how to successfully handle a variety of tasks for clients to achieve their objectives effectively.

In her spare time, Julija particularly enjoys spending time outdoors, attending the gym to stay fit, cooking and listening to podcasts about human psychology and history.

After completing her LLB (Hons) in Business Law at Guildhall University where she studied company law, taxation and related subjects, Ingrid studied at the Inns of Court School of Law and was called to the Bar in 1995, specialising in European Competition Law and International Trade.

 Ingrid’s first position was at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Edinburgh where she worked as a corporate tax senior in the Corporate Tax and Life Insurance Tax Department of the Financial Services Division as a tax advisor for large banks and insurance companies. This involved working as part of a team of three looking at tax planning strategies for multi-national insurance companies, leading often to international corporate restructuring for tax purposes. Ingrid was initially recruited to prepare a report to be disclosed during a tax investigation by the Revenue involving the tax treatment under the pre anti avoidance legislation of a box option, which was the underlying investment for the insurance companies guaranteed income bond.  

Ingrid was then asked to join Arthur Andersen (the 4th largest accountancy firm worldwide at the time) where she managed the tax compliance for a portfolio of clients which included a number of investment companies and a Japanese bank with branches in England.  

During her period at Arthur Andersen she co-wrote the Tax Guide to Europe, an internal publication that was sent to Andersen’s clients. This involved writing a chapter on each European country, summarising the corporate tax, income tax, indirect tax and capital taxes of each country. 

Ingrid then transferred to Treasury within Andersen’s (due to her prior experience of derivative instruments) where she worked as part of a team designing derivative products which banks and insurance companies used as the underlying investments for the products they sold their clients. 

Ingrid then moved to Numerica (the 15th largest UK accountancy firm at the time) as a Tax Manager focusing on owner managed businesses. There she was Head of Corporate Tax Planning and Stamp Duty. She also continued working in International Tax drafting reports for overseas clients with business interest in the UK. This involved proactive tax planning on behalf of the individual and the company, often involving international relocation and restructuring.   

In 2004 Ingrid converted to become a solicitor and has worked predominantly in law firms after a short spell lecturing Law at Brighton University. During her career as a solicitor Ingrid has worked as a Senior Associate and Head of Tax and Private Client in a Legal 500 firm in Central London.

 Ingrid regularly lectures on Trust and Taxation and Business Succession courses for the Society of Will Writers and The Association of Accountants as well as to a number of group of financial advisers.

 Ingrid initially studied piano and composition at Trinity College of Music in London and then went on to teach piano and woodwind at Eastbourne College and until recently, whilst living in Edinburgh, Ingrid gave regular piano recitals at the Edinburgh Society for Musicians.

Ingrid then moved to Numerica (the 15th largest UK accountancy firm at the time) as a Tax Manager focusing on owner managed businesses. There she was Head of Corporate Tax Planning and Stamp Duty. She also continued working in International Tax drafting reports for overseas clients with business interest in the UK. This involved proactive tax planning on behalf of the individual and the company, often involving international relocation and restructuring.   

In 2004 Ingrid converted to become a solicitor and has worked predominantly in law firms after a short spell lecturing Law at Brighton University. During her career as a solicitor Ingrid has worked as a Senior Associate and Head of Tax and Private Client in a Legal 500 firm in Central London.
