Chris was also a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Taxation and became one of the most sought after practitioners in the private client field covering both tax and chancery work. 

Most readers will remember Chris’ lectures: he had a unique ability to make them both intelligible and entertaining for general and specialist practitioners alike despite using no power point slides. He wrote and contributed to many books, including Encyclopaedia of Forms and Precedents, Trust Taxation and Dymonds Capital Taxes. His writing style was deceptively simple but concise and beautiful to read. His opinions were similarly short but always to the point.

Chris had a great ability to identify the critical issue in any given problem and this, combined with his compassion and empathy for the more human concerns often faced by clients who sought his help, made him pre-eminent in the private client field. 

Above all else, Chris possessed a lightness and generosity of spirit that touched all whom he met. After writing his opinion for that day, he would often persuade a colleague to come to a matinee or concert, time out never regretted. It was indeed a rare privilege to know and work with him.
