Harrison Drury has appointed wills and probate specialist Victoria Hill to further develop our wills, inheritance and trusts service in the Ribble Valley.
Victoria joins our Clitheroe office as associate solicitor from Vincents Solicitors in Preston. Her appointment brings Harrison Drury’s ‘private client’ team to 12 working across its five offices.
With over a decade of experience, Victoria provides professional advice on the drafting of Wills and inheritance tax planning, Lasting Powers of Attorney and the administration of estates.
Victoria has worked with a wide of range of clients including business owners and owners of large rural estates. She is particularly adept at managing complex cases of estate administration.
Clare Fleming, head of the firm’s private client team, said: “Victoria is a valuable addition to the Clitheroe team. With more than ten years’ post qualification experience in private client matters she will be key in advising clients including on the more complex estate administration matters.
“The Ribble Valley continues to be a sought-after location to live and work. Her appointment helps us to build our private client services in the region as we continue to support people, local businesses and the farming community.”
Victoria is a law graduate from Leeds Metropolitan University and completed her Legal Practice Course at Manchester Metropolitan University.
She said: “Harrison Drury is a leading firm in the region with a great reputation. I come from Colne and East Lancashire is very much my home, so I am delighted to be working on this patch and to be part of a great team in Clitheroe.
“The firm offers an extremely professional service. I particularly enjoy the variety of work involved in estate administration, no two are the same.”
When away from the office, Victoria enjoys visiting the Lake District, reading and spending time with her family and friends and her dog Teddy.
