Mervyn Huston(Richmond)


Estates Team

After 47 years with Knapps, Merv has finally called it a day and has officially retired from active service!

Sadly he will no longer be available to clients but fortunately for us, he will be staying on in an advisory capacity to assist the Estates team.  His knowledge in the area of Will drafting and complex estates is legendary and he would be widely considered as one of Nelson’s most experienced practitioner in this field.

Merv’s length of time at Knapps has seen him advise and help 2 to 3 generations of the same family.  His knowledge of family history, names and events means it is quicker for us to ask Merv rather than look up the database.

He is an inspiration to us all.  There will never be another Mervyn William Huston but, indirectly, his knowledge and expertise will continue to benefit clients and the Estate’s team in his new advisory role.

With extra time up his sleeve, Merv will now hopefully pick up those golf clubs again but his real passion lies in the cut and thrust of cards – bridge being his game of choice.
