Ramsdens expands its contentious probate practice with partner hire

Yorkshire firm Ramsdens Solicitors has appointed wills, trusts and estate disputes specialist Nazia Nawaz as a partner in its contentious probate team.

Based in Huddersfield, Nawaz brings with her a wealth of litigation and dispute resolution experience of more than 20 years.

She specialises in all types of inheritance disputes and contentious probate matters, as well as land and farming disputes, including will validity claims, removal of executors and trustees and financial abuse claims.

Nawaz has joined the Yorkshire firm after leading the wills, trusts and estate disputes team in the Manchester office of a national top 25 law firm.

She has also spent most of the past six years working at a highly reputable Northwest law firm where she developed its contentious probate offering.

Commenting on her move to Yorkshire, Nawaz: “I have always admired Ramsdens as one of the most reputable and leading law firms in Yorkshire and am honoured to be joining the firm. I look forward to being part of and contributing to Ramsdens’s continued journey and success story.”

Paul Joyce, managing partner at Ramsdens, added: “We are delighted to welcome Nazia to Ramsdens. She has a wealth of experience that will boost our contentious probate practice. We’re always looking for opportunities to strengthen our offering and support to our clients, to ensure that we evolve with their needs.”

In January, Ramsdens expanded its private client team with the appointment of Sarah Hodkinson as a senior associate.

Hodkinson joined from Schofield Sweeney and took up a key role within the department at the firm’s Edgerton office.
