A Shropshire law firm is expanding its private client team as the business continues to grow to meet demand from clients.

Two new associates have joined Lanyon Bowdler, with Lisa Jones being based at the firm’s Oswestry office and Tristan Lewis in Ludlow.

The pair join the firm as Giles Scott takes up the position as head of the private client team to allow Edward Rees, who previously ran the department, to head up the team based in Telford.

Giles said he was delighted to welcome the new members of staff to the team

“It is important that we continue to expand to meet the highest standard of service our customers expect from us,” he said.

“This commitment has seen us take on new staff and we are pleased to announce Lisa and Tristan as the latest to join our team.

“Our department is seeing an ever-increasing workload and Lisa will bolster our Oswestry office while Tristan takes up his position at Ludlow.”

Tristan Lewis has around 10 years’ experience of dealing with wills, trusts and administration of estates, and has worked on a range of private client matters, including Lasting Powers of Attorney and registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney.

He studied at Derby University, graduating in 2002, before completing the Common Professional Exam and Legal Practice Course in 2004 at Staffordshire University.

Tristan completed his training contract at Waldrons Solicitors in 2007 and continued to work in the West Midlands before joining Lanyon Bowdler.

He is a fully-accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly, an independent, national organisation of lawyers who provide specialist legal advice for older and vulnerable people, their families and carers.

Lisa Jones studied at Aberystwyth University and graduated with a law degree in 2003 before completing the Legal Practice Course at Chester College of Law the following year.

She then joined Walker Smith Way Solicitors based in Chester and Wrexham and completed her training contract, qualifying as a solicitor in September 2006.

Lisa is very experienced in advising on a range of private client matters and is a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.

She will be helping clients with their lifetime legal planning needs, such as wills, inheritance tax, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Enduring Powers of Attorney and elderly client issues. She can also advise on probate and administration of estates.
