Clarke Willmott LLP fields a strong private client litigation team whose practice stretches across the region and operates from offices the length of the M5 corridor. Alongside standard inheritance disputes, the department is particularly strong in the agricultural sector; it has a strong reputation for dealing with proprietary estoppel cases. The highly experienced Bonita Walters heads up the team in the Bristol office, while co-head Esther Woolford leads the Taunton office. Senior associate Sarah O’Grady (also based in Taunton) combines work in will disputes with experience in the agricultural sector.
