Legal director joins private client team at Clarion

Gareth Marland has joined the private client practice at Clarion in Leeds.

With experience of handling matters for wealthy individuals, including inheritance tax planning, trusts and wills, Marland takes up the position of legal director with Clarion.

He spent more than 12 years in the private client team at a Harrogate law firm where he developed specialisms in advising farming clients and business owners.

Marland is a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners and Solicitors for the Elderly.

His experience includes advising on a range of matters such as making wills, inheritance tax, setting up trusts, probate, succession planning for business and farm owners, and powers of attorney.

Viv Wild, partner and head of the private client practice at Clarion, commented: “With his strong track record of advising entrepreneurs, business owners, farming families and landowners, Gareth brings additional expertise, complementing the skills of our growing team.”

“As well as building strong relationships with clients in complex and often sensitive situations, he also appreciates the value of working with other professional advisers and will work to strengthen our network of contacts among IFAs and accountants.”

Marland added: “As a lawyer who prides himself on providing advice to clients in a clear and compassionate manner, I felt that my approach perfectly chimed with Clarion’s.”

“The firm has built a strong reputation as having one of the leading private client teams in the region, providing integrated services covering both business and personal wealth protection and estate planning.”

“I am looking forward to adding my technical expertise and specialist knowledge in the agricultural sector, as the practice continues to expand.”
