Law firm Lodders has revealed an abundance of appointments across the firm, including the promotion of Vicki Gulliver to Head of Probate in the Private Client team.
Since joining Lodders in 2007, Vicki Gulliver has embraced Lodders’ training and professional development support and opportunities, and is now a senior associate and chartered legal executive. A specialist in probate issues, the administration of estates, wills, and Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs), her promotion to Head of Probate took effect this month (January 2023).
Claire Houghton has joined the Private Client team as an associate following nine years at Warwick firm Moore & Tibbets. A specialist in wills, Inheritance Tax Planning, LPAs and the administration of estates, Claire is a member of STEP.
Lodders’ dispute resolution team is also expanding as demand for its specialist services continues to grow. Contentious probate specialist Anjali Narshi has joined as an associate, and Katie Mann as a solicitor in the Property Dispute Resolution team, specialising in commercial and residential property disputes after originally joining Lodders as a trainee.
Amita Chauhan joins the Employment team as an associate, and while having originally joined Lodders as a paralegal in 2019, Kate Allen has qualified as a solicitor in the firm’s Corporate and Commercial department.
The firm has also recently welcomed six trainees – Julie Hodge, Emily Packer, Lizzy Curnock, Olivia Beeton, Lucia Gallato, and Alysha Palmer.
“Our team continues to grow in order to meet the sustained demand for our legal advice and expertise,” says Lodders’ managing partner Paul Mourton.
“Vicki’s promotion to head of probate, as well as each of the new appointments and recent intake of trainees, is a clear sign of Lodders’ commitment to its future, robust succession, and strategy for sustained and future growth by developing our people from within that has the next generation of talent firmly at its heart.
“2022 proved to be another milestone year for Lodders, with the additional hire of several sector-leading partners, and being crowned the Law Firm of the Year in the region’s leading awards.”
