Martin Green – Director

Martin is a Partner of Lodders Solicitors. He was appointed a Director of Self in 2004.

Martin heads the Private Client Department at Lodders, having trained originally at Pinsents. He specialises in tax and trusts, capital gains tax, estate and inheritance tax planning. He has always enjoyed dealing with people, and that has helped him oversee the growth of Lodders’ private client department into one of the largest and best regarded teams in the Midlands.

Recognised as a leading lawyer by Chambers, Martin serves on many important committees for the Law Society and other eminent bodies. Whenever he finds this too taxing, he enjoys an outdoor life away from work. Living in a village near Stratford he’s able to spot birds on country walks and even to recognise them by their calls. It’s a knack for observation and detail that serves his clients well too.

With four children around university age, he’s got an abiding interest in learning new things. A self-confessed ‘sports nut’, he regularly plays tennis and golf. He will also watch sport of any kind, particularly the England and Coventry City football teams, a rare combination of patience and passion.
