Clarion grows contentious private client team

Liam Brooke has joined Clarion’s expanding contentious private client team in Leeds as an associate solicitor.

Liam joins from Irwin Mitchell LLP in Leeds where he worked within the contentious probate team having undertaken a three year training contract with the firm.  He graduated from the University of Lancaster with an LLB Law degree before completing his Legal Practise Course and qualifying with a distinction.

Liam has experience of dealing with disputes over the validity of wills, disputed inheritance cases and contentious trust matters.

Lynsey Harrison, head of Clarion’s contentious private client team, said: “Having specialised in contentious probate for the last 13 years, I’ve seen a marked increase in demand from clients needing expert advice on navigating this complex field of law and, as a result, we’re growing the team.  Liam comes to us with a solid grounding in contentious probate and will be a welcome addition to the team.”

Liam added: “This is a great opportunity to join a renowned contentious private client practice with a strong reputation for its technical knowledge and empathy with clients. These types of disputes are often a stressful and emotional experience for clients and I find it hugely satisfying to use my legal knowledge to guide clients through these difficult times towards a strong and successful outcome.”
