Browne Jacobson announces appointment of new private client legal expert

8 June 2021

National law firm Browne Jacobson has strengthened its private client offering with the appointment of partner Imogen Holmes into its Nottingham office.

Imogen, who is ranked in Band 1 by independent legal directory, Chambers & Partners for her work in private wealth law, will support the further growth of the firm’s well established private client team both regionally and nationally.

Imogen has over 13 years' experience of acting on a broad mix of private client related matters including estate and succession planning, wills and trusts, inheritance tax planning and wealth protection, provision for farming families and estate/trust administration. She also has considerable experience in providing advice to families with disabilities and on mental capacity, care provision and funding issues.

Browne Jacobson’s private client practice is ranked tier 1 by Legal 500 and regarded by Chambers & Partners as a "major name," and the "premier player for private clients in Nottingham”.

The practice is made up of nine specialist lawyers across the firm’s Nottingham and London offices but works nationally with a diverse client base made up of business owners, landed estates and farmers, wealthy individuals and their families and trustees both on and offshore. The team also works closely with accountants, independent financial advisors and other professionals.

The team provides specialist legal advice on wills, tax planning, succession and estate planning, trust advice and administration, probate and powers of attorney, specialist advice on commercial trusts and non-approved pension schemes.

Commenting on Imogen’s appointment, partner Lucy Worwood who heads up the private client team said:

“Imogen is a well-respected and highly talented lawyer within the private client space.

“She is a trusted legal adviser to families and individuals regionally and nationally and has acted on some very complex and sensitive private client cases over the years.

“Her extensive technical and commercial knowledge across a broad spectrum of private client areas will further strengthen our practice and her straightforward, pragmatic and personal approach will be a great fit for the firm and our clients.”

Imogen Holmes added: “I am really proud to be joining a firm that has such a great reputation in the market for delivering first class service to its clients.

“Browne Jacobson is known for its clear solution-based approach, its ability to connect its clients and its down to earth working culture so I am delighted to be able to be part of that and to support in developing and growing the private client practice even further.”

Imogen joins the firm from Wilkin Chapman LLP.
