Rachel Williams Joins Top Law Firm’s Estate Planning Outfit
The tax, trusts and estates team of leading national law firm Irwin Mitchell has recruited a new solicitor to its home office in Sheffield.
Rachel Williams joins the leading national team from Co-Op Legal Services, having qualified as a solicitor in 2004. Rachel is an expert in handling a range of private client matters including wills, trusts, long-term care planning, powers of attorney and administration of estates among others.
Rachel will sit in the Sheffield office’s estate planning team, which is headed by senior associate Emma McCann and which forms part of the Sheffield office’s tax, trusts and estates team, led by partner Gillian Coverley.
The estate planning team focuses on providing individuals with complex advice on a complete range of planning for all stages of life but with a particular specialism in later life issues. The service includes advice on intergenerational estate and tax planning, wills, powers of attorney, care home fee issues and trust advice.
The estate planning team also recently appointed a new paralegal, Anastazia Zglobis, who joined from Chesterfield law firm Banner Jones. Anastazia is currently working towards her Cilex qualification.
The appointment of Rachel and Anastazia strengthens the planning capability of Irwin Mitchell’s tax, trusts and estates team in the north. The national tax, trusts and estates outfit has other presences with offices in Leeds, London, Chichester, Newbury and Gatwick.
