Berwins Solicitors, which has offices in Harrogate and Leeds, has strengthened its private client with the appointment of Helen Dawson.
Ms Dawson previously worked for Ison Harrison in Leeds and joins Berwins’ Harrogate office advising on Wills, trusts, probate, estate planning and elderly client matters.
Julie Jewers, director of Berwins and head of the life team, said Helen’s appointment would support growth of the firm’s private client services:
With four highly experienced STEP accredited life specialists in our busy private client department we can meet the growing demand for high quality advice in this complex and sensitive area of law,”
We achieve consistently high rankings in the Legal 500 and Chambers UK and are proud of the fact that our solicitors are specially trained in advising the elderly and their families, including those coping with dementia.
Helen’s expertise in probate, Wills and estate planning will support our work in key areas, such as capacity and Lasting Powers of Attorney, and enable us to continue to involve ourselves in charity will campaigns such as that of Cancer Research UK and a recent free will scheme for Saint Michael’s Hospice which was highly successful and for which we were over subscribed.
Ms Dawson said: I am delighted to have this opportunity to be part of an established life team with such a strong reputation in the Harrogate area for legal excellence and client care.
