Alun Butler - Woodfines LLP

Within: Personal tax, trusts and probate: Cambridge

The team at Woodfines LLP underwent significant change last year but it still retains an experienced and respected team of private client lawyers. Karl Dembicki moved to Buckles Solicitors LLP but Tim Addinell joined from Greenwoods GRM to work with veteran consultant Alun Butler and Esther Marchant, who has 30 years' experience in private client matters. The firm-wide practice is also led by a new recruit in the form of Stephen Patch who joined from Taylor Vinters. The firm handles the full range of wills, taxation, estate planning, trusts and probate work for high-net-worth individuals, business owners, academics and entrepreneurs. Addinell recently acted for an estate valued at more than £20m in a highly complex probate matter involving substantial shares and property.
