Gloucestershire Echo - - BUSINESS -

» WIL­LANS LLP has wel­comed a new face, as well as pro­mot­ing one of its long­est-serv­ing lawyers. Char­tered le­gal ex­ec­u­tive Sam Doherty has joined the Cham­bers-rated wills, trusts and pro­bate team.

She ad­vises clients on wills, last­ing pow­ers of at­tor­ney and set­ting up and ad­min­is­ter­ing trusts.

She also deals with pro­bate and Court of Pro­tec­tion ap­pli­ca­tions. The eight-strong team, which was recog­nised in the Cham­bers High Net Worth guide along with head of depart­ment Si­mon Cook, is one of the largest of its kind in the re­gion.

In the firm’s fam­ily law team, which is also recog­nised in the in­de­pen­dent guide, char­tered le­gal ex­ec­u­tive Jonathan Ea­ger, inset, has been pro­moted to se­nior as­so­ciate.

Mr Ea­ger, who joined Wil­lans in 2007, has worked in mat­ri­mo­nial law for nearly 20 years and is noted for his ex­per­tise in na­tional le­gal guide The Le­gal 500.

Man­ag­ing part­ner Brid­get Red­mond said: “We’re de­lighted to wel­come Sam to the firm and award Jonathan a wellde­served pro­mo­tion.

“Sam’s ap­point­ment fur­ther strength­ens our pri­vate client of­fer­ing, help­ing us to de­liver the prompt and ex­pert le­gal ad­vice that we are known for.

“Jonathan is well-re­spected in the field for clear, prac­ti­cal ad­vice he gives in all ar­eas of fam­ily law. We are de­lighted to give him recog­ni­tion for his ex­pe­ri­ence and hard work.”

Wil­lans em­ploys around 80 peo­ple across mul­ti­ple of­fices in Im­pe­rial Square, Chel­tenham.

Wil­lans helps fam­ily busi­nesses no mat­ter what their si­t­u­a­tion or stage of their jour­ney and is de­lighted to be spon­sor­ing the Fam­ily Busi­ness of the Year Award at the Glouces­ter­shire Live Busi­ness Awards.
