A specialist solicitor with almost 30 years experience has joined a leading Coventry law firm.
Joyce Bennell is the newest member of the wills, probate and trust team at Band Hatton, based in Copthall House, Station Square, in the city centre.
Ms Bennell has spent 27 years working in the sector, also taking in issues surrounding elderly clients such as enduring power of attorney, for law firms in Birmingham and London.
She said: "This is an exciting time in the area of wills and trusts as the Civil Partnerships Act has created lots of new business opportunities.
"With gay couples having the opportunity to benefit from inheritance tax mitigation schemes I anticipate a lot more enquiries about wills."
