LCF Law expands personal law team with two key appointments

LCF Law has appointed experienced associate solicitors Wendy Scarr and Hana Gwyn to its 19-strong personal law department.

Scarr (pictured, left), who is an experienced Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP)-accredited private client lawyer, joins from Harrogate-based Stowe Family Law, and was previously head of private clients at a Leeds-based firm.

She has experience in all aspects of private client work, including wills, probates, trusts, powers of attorney and deputyship responsibilities for those without capacity, as well as carrying out Court of Protection work.

Commenting on her appointment at Leeds-, Bradford-, Harrogate- and Ilkley-based LCF Law, Scarr said: “I wanted to join a firm that offers wider services with a strong team of professionals and reputation for private client work, where there are good future prospects, so LCF Law was the perfect fit.”

Gwyn (pictured, right), who has more than four years of post-qualification experience, has an excellent academic and professional record. A STEP-accredited private client lawyer, she joins LCF Law from Manchester-based Kuits.

With experience in all areas of private client work, with a particular focus on working with high-net-worth individuals, she provides trust and tax planning advice, wills, lasting powers of attorney, probate and Court of Protection services.

She said: “I will be handling the full remit of private client work, which made this an appealing role. I’ve been with my previous firm for seven years and was keen to work in Yorkshire and progress my career at LCF Law.”

Neil Shaw, a partner at LCF Law and head of the firm’s personal law team, said: “Wendy and Hana bring an impressive set of skills to their roles and are welcome additions to our expert team.  Our clients will definitely benefit from Wendy and Hana’s expertise.”
