Shakespeare Martineau adds to private client team

Law firm Shakespeare Martineau has added to its Bristol-based private client team with the appointment of solicitor Olga Washington.

With almost five years experience, Washington – who has joined the firm from WLS Solicitors – specialises in a full range of private client services, including the creation and administration of trusts, with a focus on probate and estate administration, wills, inheritance tax planning, and powers of attorney.

She said: “I am very excited to have joined such a well-accomplished private client team, which is known for its superior client care and interesting, complex cases. Shakespeare Martineau has a genuine welcoming culture and I am looking forward to developing my technical skills, while also being able to assist with the growth of the private client department in Bristol.”

Shakespeare Martineau expanded its reach into the South West following a merger with Bristol-headquartered GL Law in October 2022.

Heledd Wyn, head of private client at Shakespeare Martineau in Bristol, said: “We are delighted to welcome Olga to our Bristol-based private client team. We are currently experiencing growing demand for our services due to the strong reputation we have built over the years, and I am looking forward to seeing Olga continuing her already successful career with us.”
