Lee Yates Private Wealth Senior Associate

I started working at Beswicks Legal in 1998 before qualifying as a solicitor in 2000.

In March 2019, I joined the Private Wealth team and was promoted to team manager in May 2020.

I handle all aspects of trust and estate administration and provide estate planning advice. From simple wills to complex estates and business succession planning, I support and guide clients through the legal process sensitively and professionally, ensuring they achieve complete peace of mind.
