Midland law firm Sydney Mitchell has appointed Tracy Creed as a partner.

Ms Creed heads the private client team at Sydney Mitchell and re-joined the firm as an associate three years ago, during which time she has expanded the department.

She has extensive experience in all areas of private client work including trusts, wills, probate, power of attorney, deputyship, inheritance tax planning, estate planning and care funding issues.

“Tracy is a specialist in elderly client advice and is well known in the Midlands for this work,” said partner Karen Moores.

“We are pleased to welcome her into the partnership. This reinforces and rewards the excellent work she has done with the team.

“She has great skill in providing clear, straightforward advice to clients and her colleagues and is very deserving of this promotion.”

Ms Creed, who will be based at the firm’s Shirley office but will work with clients across the Midlands, said: “I am really pleased to be joining the partnership. I have thoroughly enjoyed the last three years and it is a real pleasure to see how the team is developing.

“Our expanded team includes a registered mental health nurse who helps and supports private clients through complex care funding and continuing healthcare assessment process.”

“I am really pleased to be able to work with clients and their families and to ensure they get the best quality advice from a highly skilled team. Private client related matters can be complex whether it is dealing with care matters, estranged families or international probate.”
