Edmunds & Eve is led by me, in the picture; Ed Goniszewski. I came into Finance and Law after some 20-years working in industry in a variety of professional engineering/management roles including; high-tech microelectronic systems design and manufacture. My skills and professional qualifications made me into a rounded integrator of industry and business.
In the 1990's recession my employer went into liquidation, like many. So during a spell of unemployment, I was ‘fish-hooked’ by a major finance company in search of qualified people. And the rest, as they say; is history.
My role as a financial consultant/planner was helped by my technical background. And clients appreciated my down-to-earth Plain English discussions that helped them to understand how things worked, and why.
Real Quality and Value
In 1996 I came across a Which? report, on the value of Wills produced at that time. It was rather disconcerting and clear to me that there was a significant shortfall in any financial plan that I made. Often clients' plans were negatively affected by their poor Will, or lack of one. I decided to learn all that I could about Wills & Estates, and integrate it into my financial planning service so that my clients would have a more complete and superior class of service.
So, Edmunds & Eve was born. What we do is completely different and beyond the knowledge of most High Street providers. Our remit is the combined ‘legal & financial’ matters in Wills & Estates; because everything of family and finance is affected. As a result, we provide a superior private client and business succession service, to help clients achieve their real wish, as well as preserve fortune in ‘the family’.
Our Aims and Ethos
Our ethos centres around the fact that each and every client that we work with is unique. We never make assumptions, nor provide you with work to a template. But rather, our lawyers invest the time and effort to get to know you, your wishes, your family and your circumstances, so that we can give you 'best advice' and create the 'right plan' for you.
As part of our service, we guide you in the effects of the law and consequence upon your circumstances and wishes. In this way, you will become knowledgeable, and can make truly informed decisions about what you want to achieve.
