A senior solicitor from Ilkley who specialises in personal law has been promoted to Partner at LCF Law.
Ann Christian, who has worked for the firm for eight years, has been responsible for growing the firm’s client base across a wide range of services including wealth protection, inheritance planning, wills and probate.
Neil Shaw, head of personal law at LCF Law, said: “We have a sound reputation for providing people with trusted advice and guidance across all elements of family law and Ann has a particularly strong ability to guide our clients through their specific needs when it comes to financial issues – she has great technical skills and is a real asset to the team.”
Ann says: “I thoroughly enjoy my role at LCF Law, solving complex legal problems and guiding people through what can be very complicated processes when it comes to inheritance planning.
“People have the right to leave their assets to whomever they chose, many want to provide for a mix of family members, friends and charities and of course ensure that as much of their estate as possible is passed on without contest and minimum tax penalty – which is where we excel.”
Ann joins three other Partners within the Personal law team which also consists of seven lawyers and support staff. Ann qualified as a solicitor in 2001 and previously worked as a solicitor within a Trust Estates team in a Manchester law firm.
Ann is a member of the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners and has sat as a member of the First Tier Tax Tribunal for the last six years.
