Clarion’s private wealth team, one of the largest dedicated teams in the north, has appointed another two lawyers bringing it to a team of ten. Brindley Meredith joins as an associate solicitor and Natalie Goldfinch as an experienced paralegal.
Brindley is a six year qualified solicitor and has spent the last five years with a firm in London. As well as having extensive experience of managing matters for wealthy individuals, including inheritance tax planning, trusts and wills, he has specialist knowledge of acting for commercial property owners.
In addition, Natalie Goldfinch has joined the Clarion team as a paralegal with over three years’ experience and a particular expertise in trust administration.
Stephanie Parish, legal director in Clarion’s private wealth team, commented: “It’s great to be attracting the best talent as we continue to grow. These latest appointments add further depth and demonstrate Clarion’s commitment to invest in our strong private client offering.”
Gareth, legal director in the team, adds: “As a firm, we pride ourselves on taking care of all legal needs under one roof and this holistic approach is proving increasingly popular as clients turn to us to look after all their business and personal matters.”
Brindley explains: “Having heard great things about Clarion, when I was looking at moving back to Yorkshire, I was keen to talk to them. It quickly became apparent that Clarion would be a place I would enjoy working, and that the private wealth team would be not only a great personal fit, but would also provide a fantastic opportunity to further develop as a private wealth lawyer.”
Natalie comments: “Given the private wealth team’s strong regional and national reputation, coupled with its inter-departmental relationships, particularly with the contentious private client team, I’m excited that I will be collaborating on a wide variety of matters that promise to be highly interesting and rewarding. I was also attracted by Clarion’s positive culture as a firm that cares deeply for colleagues and the outstanding client service it provides.”
