Berwins appoints three new private client lawyers

The new recruits join Berwins as part of an investment into the firm’s personnel and to spearhead the firm’s expansion

Yorkshire law firm Berwins has announced the appointment of three new private client lawyers to its life team as part of a “significant” investment.

Derek Hellawell, Kate Atkins and Jeremy Bristow have joined the team as part of an ongoing investment into the firm’s personnel and they will reportedly spearhead expansion in their respective areas.

Hellawell is a specialist in supporting clients dealing with the legal issues that arise after a bereavement, while Atkins has extensive Court of Protection experience, working with families when a loved one becomes unable to make their own decisions.

Additionally, Bristow, advises on a wide range of private client matters, including wills and succession planning.

Berwins said the appointments will allow the firm to “maintain a focus on delivering the highest levels of legal expertise”, while adding “resilience and expertise” to further develop the practice.

Julie Jewers, team leader, said: “We’re thrilled to have appointed three lawyers of such high calibre. Each has a proven track record of proactively caring for clients and crafting legal solutions which make a real difference to the lives of those they support.

“Their mix of expertise will blend with knowledge and experience already within the team and adding further resilience to the rounded service we offer to clients.”
