Law firm recruits two solicitors

Oglethorpe Sturton & Gillibrand, which has offices in Lancaster and Kirkby Lonsdale, has appointed Helen McCabe and Laura Brereton to strengthen its private client department.

Helen is a senior solicitor and a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP). Laura Brereton qualified as a solicitor in 2016.

The private client department at Oglethorpe Sturton & Gillibrand deals with wills, probate, powers of attorney, court of protection and trust creation and administration work as well as all aspects of inheritance and succession planning, with a particular specialism in agricultural and rural clients.

Clare Love, head of the department, said: "We have a great team and both Laura and Helen will help us build on this, to ensure we can help our clients look after their affairs, both now and in the future. It is really encouraging that we are so busy and able to welcome new members to the firm, despite the challenges of the pandemic."
