Beaumont Legal, one of the fastest-growing law practices in the UK, has announced Libby Holding as its latest recruit, joining the firm as head of wills and probate.

Based in Wakefield with a turnover exceeding £5m, Beaumont Legal is one of Yorkshire’s leading law firms and has tripled in size since 2013.

The firm houses one of the largest residential conveyancing departments in the country and the appointment continues their expansion outside of conveyancing, following the recent success of their online commercial law calculator launched last month.

Solicitor and non-practising barrister Libby Holding will manage and develop a department covering wills, probate, powers of attorney, declarations of trust, asset protection and estate-planning services. Libby was selected because of her personal approach and ambition to provide a modern service to customers.

Nick Masheder, managing partner, said: ‘Libby’s appointment is a key element for our continuing growth plans.

‘She impressed us with her ability, passion and vision for the future of private-client services. She’s already had a great impact on the team and we’re looking forward to her working to advance our offering in wills and probate work.’

Libby added: ‘I’m looking forward to getting involved with developing the department, utilising new technologies to make ourselves stand out from competitors and building on the personal service our customers receive.’
