Leeds Team Welcomes Solicitor Sarah Wintle
A new solicitor has joined the quickly growing tax, trusts and estates team at leading national law firm Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth’s office in Leeds.
Sarah Wintle joins the Leeds tax, trusts and estates team from Ward Hadaway, having qualified as a solicitor this year. Her experience includes a wide range of issues with tax and trusts including estate and trust administration, handling probate matters and drafting complex wills.
Sarah also frequently handles planning for later life issues – in which Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth has a specialist national team – including lasting power of attorney and deputyship matters, making applications to the Court of Protection and assisting clients with their affairs under deputyships.
Sarah’s arrival brings the tax, trusts and estates team in Leeds to four – senior associate Andrea Jones formed the team in February this year, joining from Ward Hadaway, and since then has recruited paralegal Stephanie Smith and tax manager Paul Spenceley. This quick growth highlights how Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth has recognised the growing market in Leeds, with the team going from strength to strength.
The team in Leeds forms an important part of the national tax, trusts and estates team, which is one of the largest outfits in the country. Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth was ranked as a top-tier firm by specialist private client directory eprivateclient, the only national firm to be included in the top band.
