A legal firm with offices in Blackburn and Bolton has announced a new addition to their team.

KBL Solicitors has hired  Zoe Fleming to head up their private client department, expanding wealth management and estate planning services across the North West.

Zoe recently joined the business as a partner and head of department, overseeing wills, trusts, tax, and probate-related matters.

Over the past year, the department has seen significant expansion, with the collective experience of the team enabling them to handle some of the most intricate and multifaceted legal challenges facing clients.

Zoe said: "With offices in Bolton and Blackburn, KBL are a well-established practice with an excellent reputation and enviable client base.

"This role perfectly aligns with my career aspirations, allowing me to work closely with clients on a personal level, particularly in the complicated and often sensitive realm of the law."

Zoe, who has more than 17 years of experience, has a keen interest in long-term planning for elderly and vulnerable individuals. 

She holds full professional accreditation with Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) and serves as a director of the regional SFE group for the North West.

She is also a longstanding member of The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.

Debbie Roberts, a partner at KBL Solicitors, said: "We are delighted to welcome Zoe to the business to further grow our expanding team.

"Zoe’s expertise in managing high net worth and complex estates together with her commitment to understanding each client’s unique circumstances will be invaluable as we strive to achieve the best possible outcome for each and every client."
