We are thrilled to announce that Liam Brooke has joined Ramsdens Solicitors as a Partner to lead our growing Will, Trust and Estate Disputes practice.

With a wealth of experience in advising on all types of Contentious Trust and Probate matters, Liam joins our Edgerton office from Rothley Law’s private client practice (previously part of  Shoosmiths) where he spent two years, latterly as a Principal Associate. He has also worked for Clarion and Irwin Mitchell.

Liam has expertise in disputes regarding the validity of Wills, claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 and disputes involving Executors and Trustees. He also deals with disputes arising within the Court of Protection.

Liam is a Member of ACTAPS (Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists) and is also a member of the Northern Contentious Probate Group.

The firm is continuing to strengthen our five-strong dedicated team which also saw the appointment of Steven Murgatroyd as a Senior Associate earlier this year. Steven is experienced in both dispute resolution and Wills and Probate, and has a strong technical legal background when dealing with Deputyships, and Powers of Attorney.

Our Will, Trust and Estate Disputes team ably support the firm’s 41-strong Private Wealth and Succession and 9-strong Court of Protection teams both of which are one of the largest teams in Yorkshire.

Nick Armitage, who heads up our Dispute Resolution teams, said: “Liam’s arrival is a further welcome boost to our experienced Will, Trust and Estate Disputes team which now includes one Partner, two Senior Associates and two Legal Assistants. With an impressive track record of advising in this complex and often sensitive area of the law, Liam will take the helm as we continue to drive our reputation as experts in this specialist field, offering the most senior regional team outside Leeds.”

Liam Brooke comments: “Having previously worked with Ramsdens and being well aware of their excellent reputation in the private client sector, I recognised this as a great opportunity to build a strong contentious probate practice which rivals the expertise of many of the large, national firms. We are fortunate to have such experienced specialist lawyers here at Ramsdens, and further developing this growing area of law will complement the firm’s already-strong Non-Contentious Probate offering.”

With a heritage of providing a wide range of legal services to businesses and individuals for more than 150 years, Ramsdens Solicitors has 11 offices throughout Yorkshire. The multi-award-winning law firm has 43 partners leading the 230-strong team.
