Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall Solicitors has strengthened its wills, trusts and probate team with the appointment of Jennifer Moorhouse.

Associate solicitor Jennifer joins WHN Solicitors, which operates eight offices across Lancashire and Greater Manchester, from Fieldings Porter Solicitors in Bolton.

With over ten years’ experience in the legal sector, Jennifer is also a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP), a global professional body that recognises experts with proven qualifications and professional experience in trusts, estates, wills and tax.

Based at WHN’s Blackburn office, Jennifer works closely with clients to help resolve complex trust and estate matters, while her specialism in inheritance and succession planning sees her drafting wills to ensure client assets are passed on in accordance with their wishes.

Jennifer is also experienced in dealing with Court of Protection matters and the preparation and registration of Lasting Powers of Attorney.

Jennifer said: “I am delighted to have joined the WHN team. The firm has traditional values and an excellent reputation for ensuring clients receive the best possible service and advice throughout their case.

“This is a new chapter in my career, and I look forward to supporting individuals and families across Lancashire.”

Michael Shroot, CEO of WHN Solicitors, added: “Jennifer is a well-regarded locally trained solicitor specialising in a very complex and personal area of law.

“Coupled with her Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners qualification, she embodies all the attributes we look for in our team members, so I’m confident she’ll deliver a first-class service to WHN’s clients while helping with all their inheritance and succession planning needs.”

Jennifer studied law at Bangor University before completing the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in Manchester. She qualified as a solicitor in 2014 and attained her full STEP accreditation in 2017.
