The contentious private client team at Clarion has appointed Samantha Lauriston as an associate.
With six years’ experience in the specialist field of will, trust and estate disputes, Ms Lauriston joins from a national law firm where she advised clients in Yorkshire, the North East and London as well as advising on international disputes.
Along with the rest of the team, Ms Lauriston specialises in all areas of contentious private client work but has a particular interest in financial abuse cases, for example, where there has been a breach of attorney duties or exploitation of the vulnerable and elderly.
She is also experienced in dealing with matters such as estate disputes; disappointed beneficiaries; financial provisional claims; trust disputes; executor disputes; and will validity challenges.
“Over the last 10 years, we’ve built up our team of dedicated specialists to create one of the largest and most respected stand-alone practices in the North of England,” explains partner Lynsey Harrison who leads the team.
She added: “With her solid track record of advising on will, trust and estate disputes and excellent reputation, Sam is a welcome addition to the team, further boosting our capability at a time when we have seen a significant increase in demand for these specialist services.”
