Sarah Ali joins the Schofield Sweeney private client team

Schofield Sweeney has added new starter Sarah Ali to its private client team.

Ali has joined the private client team as a solicitor based in Huddersfield, having previously worked and trained at a national law firm based in Leeds.

Schofield Sweeney, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, now employs more than 160 members of staff in Yorkshire. The private client team has played a key part in driving this growth, according to the firm.

Ashley Iredale, partner at Schofield Sweeney, said: “I am delighted to welcome Sarah to the team. It has been a busy two years for us, the team has expanded to 18 members and achieved a record turnover of £1.2 million in the last year. Sarah is a really strong addition and will be a real asset to the Huddersfield office.”

Sarah specialises in a range of private client matters, including preparing wills and trusts, probate and administration of estates and trusts. She works collaboratively with tax and financial advisors to deliver comprehensive estate planning solutions to clients.

Ali said: “I am thrilled to have joined Schofield Sweeney. The calibre and experience of the private client team is impressive which is one of my many reasons for joining the firm. I am very much looking forward to working with the private client team and the firm as a whole.”
