Sarah Finnigan has joined the Private Capital Team at North Ainley Halliwell. Sarah studied law at Durham University and qualified as a Solicitor after completing her training contract at Charles Russell in London. She returned to the North West and her legal career includes experience at both Cobbetts and Halliwells in Manchester.

Sarah is also a qualified Trust and Estate Practitioner. Senior Partner, John Ainley, said ‘She is a great asset to the firm and brings with her a wealth of experience in the areas of Probate, Wills, Trusts and Tax Planning at the highest level. We already have a strong team led by Zoë Ashton and Sarah’s experience adds another dimension to the services we provide.’

It also shows that the provincial towns are seen as centres of excellence and attract top legal talent. John Hepplestone joined the firm from Eversheds in Manchester and now heads the Commercial Property Team. Despite the recession, there has been growth in certain areas of work and it is more important than ever that clients get clear, pragmatic and expert advice both at a personal and business level.
