Harrison Drury hires private client specialist

Harrison Drury has recruited Eve Carter to lead its private client team.

A specialist in Court of Protection and mental capacity issues, Eve will be based at the firm’s Preston office and will advise clients and their families across the region.

Eve’s wider private client experience includes wills, probate, trusts, tax and later life issues. She joins Harrison Drury from Linder Myers solicitors and previously worked for London and South West firm Foot Antsey.

John Chesworth, executive chairman of Harrison Drury, said: “Court of Protection is a sensitive area of law and it takes people with specific skills and personal qualities to advise clients and their families. Eve’s reputation in this field is outstanding and it’s a privilege to have her at Harrison Drury.

“Eve takes our staff numbers to 110, up from around 85 this time last year, which is an indication of the significant growth we’re seeing across all areas of the firm.”

Eve added: “It’s feels great to be able to join such a well-regarded firm where you can also bring something new to the table. I’m looking forward to helping Harrison Drury further develop its private client offering, particularly in relation to complex mental capacity cases, but also in later life and elderly client matters.”

As a Court of Protection lawyer, Eve’s role is managing the financial affairs of those who do not have the capacity to do so. She is a member of Solicitors for the Elderly and the Court of Protection Practitioners Association.
