Probate Partner Appointed at Raworths

The Harrogate law firm, Raworths, has appointed a new partner in the Probate, Wills and Trusts Unit, bringing the number of fee-earners in this private client area to nine. William Kinread, the well-known Ripon solicitor joins as a partner under the direction of Selena Hinds. William comes from Ripon and trained at a national law firm in Leeds before returning to Ripon in 1987. He was a partner at Hutchinson and Buchanan for eighteen years and then set up in private practice in the city. He is a trustee of the Ripon Grammar School Foundation and is the current President of Harrogate and District Law Society. William has worked extensively with high-net worth individuals and his specialisations include agriculture and land management issues.

Managing partner, Christopher Butterworth says, “William is a highly respected private client lawyer with whom we have had a long association. We are delighted to welcome him to the firm as we celebrate 125 years since Raworths was founded. I have no doubt he will add to the already high level of expertise we offer our private clients.”

Elizabeth Pollock also joins the firm from Brooke North in Leeds where she was an associate solicitor specialising in employment law. Elizabeth is originally from Leeds and trained at Shulmans in the city. Her experience prior to joining Brooke North includes spells with Finn Gledhill in Halifax and Gordons in Leeds. Elizabeth will be joining the Employment Unit headed by Deborah Boylan.

Christopher Butterworth says, “We are exceptionally proud of our 125 year history in Harrogate and our associations with businesses and individuals in the town and surrounding areas. However, we do not rest on our laurels and we are always looking at ways to improve our services to our clients and build on our expertise and experience.”
