Nottingham-based law firm Rothera Sharp has announced the appointment of a new partner, helping create the largest probate department in the county.
Wills, probate and trusts solicitor Christina Yardley is the latest addition to the now 16-strong department, which is based in the Lace Market and across seven other branch offices in Nottinghamshire.
Since qualifying in 2008, Christina has become an expert in issues such as power of attorney, care fee planning and court of protection. She joins Rothera Sharp with over ten years’ experience in the legal sector.
“I am delighted to be part of a progressive and forward-thinking firm, which is continually growing its team of specialists and the services it can offer,” she said.
“Ensuring my clients get the best outcome, whatever their financial situation, is what drives me and I am looking forward to being able to help even more people in my new role.”
Along with her casework, Christina is a keen supporter of local businesses and charities. She also regularly visits community groups and other organisations to give talks on legal matters.
The firm’s joint managing partner Ann-Marie Bowman added: “It’s still less than a year since the merger of Rothera Dowson and Sharp, Young & Pearce – but during that time, Rothera Sharp has gone from strength-to-strength. This latest appointment shows that we can attract the best solicitors, who in turn offer the highest standard of service and expertise to our clients.
“Christina has a great deal of experience, which she combines with compassion and understanding for her clients, some of whom are elderly or vulnerable. She is already proving to be an asset to her team and the practice as a whole.”
As well as wills, probate and trusts, Rothera Sharp offers a wide range of personal and business legal services, including personal injury, motor transport, property and family law.
