Wills and estate planning team grows at Napthens

The specialist wills & estate planning team at Napthens solicitors has expanded with the appointment of two new recruits.
Solicitors Rachael Waring and Sharif Ela have both joined the department from Fylde Coast law firms.

Rachael specialises in probate and estate administration. She advises bereaved clients, providing professional support and advice to help them administer the deceased’s estate.

Sharif Ela advises clients on a broad range of estate planning matters from making and reviewing wills through to more complex inheritance planning and wealth preservation. With a background in banking he has a particular expertise in financial issues.

The pair are the latest to join the growing Wills & Estate Planning team after solicitor Elizabeth Byrne was appointed recently.

Kathryn Harwood, head of the department, said: “This is an exciting time for the team as we have made three new appointments in relatively quick succession.

“The demand for specialist legal advice on estate planning issues is rapidly increasing, whilst our fixed cost probate service is proving of great benefit to those who require professional help but want to remove any worry about costs at a difficult time.

“By expanding the team we are demonstrating our commitment to providing clients with the best possible level of service.”
