Leading law firm Ware & Kay Solicitors has added another Solicitor to its team in York with the return appointment of Bella O’Keeffe to its Wills & Probate Department.
Bella brings many years of experience and knowledge on a broad range of matters. These range from the preparation of Wills, creation of trusts, estate planning, taxation, Lasting Powers of Attorney (which help clients protect against the difficulties that arise with finances or personal decisions if mental capacity is lost), Court of Protection applications and care home fee planning and the administration of estates after someone has died.
As a graduate of the University of Hull and the University of Law in York, Bella gained extensive experience and knowledge at Ware & Kay which she originally joined back in 2011 and qualified as a Solicitor in 2015. After spending a brief period of time with another York practice she has decided to return to Ware & Kay. Bella is currently working towards the STEP (Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners) Diploma in Trusts & Estates.
Commenting on her appointment, Bella said: “Ware & Kay Solicitors is one of the region’s most respected law firms and I am proud to be returning to the Wills & Probate team. I enjoy the diverse nature of the work and I am looking forward to building on my specific area of expertise and working with a great team which has an excellent reputation for looking after its clients. Clients value strong support and Ware & Kay certainly take the lead in servicing their clients’ needs to the highest standard. The firm is really making its presence felt across Yorkshire and I am looking forward to playing my part in its success.
David Hyams Director said: “These are exciting times for Ware & Kay. Our continued growth and expansion has resulted in Bella returning to the firm. Her extensive experience will make her a great asset to us and our clients. The Wills & Probate team delivers high service standards and in-depth expertise to clients, and Bella will enable us to continue to grow as we move forward."
