North West law firm Napthens has expanded its team in Southport with the arrival of experienced Wills and estate planning solicitor Liz Byrne.
Napthens opened its office in Southport earlier this year following the acquisition of well-known local firm Richard Jacklin & Co.
Liz, previously based in Napthens’ Preston office, has now joined the team in Southport as demand for private client services, in particular advice on the creation of Wills, lasting powers of attorney and estate planning issues, increases.
Working alongside Richard Jacklin, Liz will now lead the development of the Wills and estate planning offering for the firm in the Southport area.
Simon Ainsworth, head of Napthens’ Private Client division, said: “Since Napthens joined the professional services community in Southport we have experienced clear growth in demand for our services.
“Liz is an excellent solicitor and her expertise will provide a real benefit to our clients in the area.”
