York-based property and life planning solicitor’s firm Guest Walker has made a number of senior appointments to its management and life planning teams.

Head of life planning Rowena Rogers has been appointed a director and joins the senior management team which includes John Walker, Helen Burrows, Deborah Barton and commercial property solicitor, Alison Munro, who became a director last year. 

The life planning team has doubled in the last 12 months with the appointment of two new senior solicitors, Hudda Morgan and Nick Clarke. 

Morgan is a senior solicitor with over 25 years’ experience in the York area and has an established reputation as a specialist in this field, particularly in complex probates and estate administration. Clarke joined the team in April 2021 with over 25 years’ experience and advises clients on all aspects relating to powers of attorney, wills and probate as well as advice on personal asset management such as gifts, trusts and estate planning.  

Guest Walker has also appointed Amanda Alden as a conveyancing executive, joining long term members of the team, Rachel Butterfield and Vicky Middleton. Alden has worked for Bromets Jackson Heath in Tadcaster for over 20 years and will be working on traditional residential conveyancing such as house, apartment and flat sales and purchases, re-mortgages, transfers of equity, equity release and purchasing new build as well as providing advice on investing in buy-to-let property.

Guest Walker director John Walker said: 'The expansion of our specialist Life Planning team means we are able to offer more of our clients a holistic approach to all of their property, business and personal matters making their lives easier and taking away the complications of otherwise having to work with multiple firms.'

Based on the Shambles in the centre of York for over 35 years, Guest Walker acts for a number of high profile and prestigious clients, offering a complete service for small and medium-sized businesses, partnerships and individuals across the UK.
