Freeths launches new trusts, estates and tax offering in Birmingham

National law firm Freeths has established a new trusts, estates and tax (TeT) offering in Birmingham following the appointment of Director Hannah Turner, who joins from Gateley Legal.

Hannah brings over 12 years’ experience specialising in estate and personal tax planning, estate administration, trust creation and administration and court of protection matters, for a wide range of clients with a variety of financial and personal backgrounds.

In her new role, Hannah will work alongside Partner and National Head of Trusts, Estates and Tax Louise Lewis as well as supporting the wider UK dispute team including Partners and Joint National Head of Private Client Services Mark Keeley and Sarah Foster. This will aim to strengthen the private wealth team’s full-service offering.

The newly established regional practice further supports Freeths’ wider business growth strategy. 

Commenting on Hannah’s appointment, Sarah Foster said: “We are delighted to welcome Hannah into our continuously thriving, expanding team. Through Hannah, we are excited to now be able to deliver bespoke private client advice directly into the Birmingham market.”

Mark Keeley continued: “Hannah has extensive experience of advising high-net-worth families and business owners about estate planning and succession issues will be invaluable to our team.”

Hannah added: “I’m looking forward to working alongside Louise and the wider national team to strengthen Freeths’ TeT offering in Birmingham, including where Freeths is appointed as an independent administrator or trustee and there is a need to work closely with the private client dispute resolution team to administer complex and challenging estates and trusts.”
