Lupton Fawcett appoints private client expert

Yorkshire law firm Lupton Fawcett has appointed Ed Taylor to its private client department.

An associate solicitor, Taylor has specialised in private client work for more than 10 years. He graduated from the College of Law, York, and joins Lupton Fawcett’s York office from Raworths in Harrogate.

Taylor advises clients on estate and trust administration, will writing with estate planning and powers of attorney. He is a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners and Solicitors for the Elderly.

Hugh Thompson, partner and head of private client at Lupton Fawcett, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Ed to our private client team. His considerable knowledge and experience will enhance the professional and personal services we provide to our clients.”

Lupton Fawcett, which has offices in Leeds, Sheffield and York, launched an HR consultancy last month to provide employers with one-stop support to meet HR goals or tackle a crisis.

The new team brings together employment law solicitors and CIPD-qualified consultants who will work together to tackle issues ranging from disciplinaries and grievances to restructuring and redundancies.

The service is aimed at small- and medium-sized entities without a full HR team, as well as larger companies that prefer to use external expertise.

In January, newly qualified solicitor Sarah Proctor boosted the Lupton Fawcett dispute resolution team in York, while Lilly Grant joined the family law team in December.
