Frank Smith & Co Solicitors are pleased to introduce and welcome Natalie Smith TEP to the firm. Frank Smith, of no relation, set up the firm in 2016 as a specialist law firm advising on all aspects of property law. The firm, which has gone from strength to strength, already has a substantial following. As part of his expansion plans Frank now welcomes Natalie to the firm to build a Private Client department increasing the inventory of services it can provide to its clients.
Natalie has been a qualified solicitor for 10 years and is a fully qualified member of the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP), the industry body for those specialising in private client work. Natalie has previously worked for WSP solicitors in Dursley and Stroud, Harrison Clark Rickerbys (HCR) in Cheltenham and Hereford and most recently Lodders in Cheltenham and Stratford-upon-Avon.
Having grown up on the family farm, and now owning a small holding herself, Natalie is able to understand from both a personal and legal perspective the issues that face her rural clients. With Frank Smith & Co Solicitors already having a strong reputation within the agricultural sector it seemed a perfect fit for Natalie and Frank to work together.
Natalie has joined Frank Smith & Co Solicitors to head up the Private Client team with the desire to provide a professional client focussed and friendly service to the firm’s clients. Natalie’s work will be of a general private client nature including Wills, Powers of attorney, Probate and tax planning. Natalie has a particular specialism in agricultural and high value estates.
Natalie commented “I am a professional, approachable, friendly and conscientious private client solicitor. I deal with matters in the most efficient and effective way for my clients and I enjoy the rapport that I build with my clients. I believe my farming and equine background allows me to understand the issues facing my rural clients and wider community.”
Managing Partner Frank Smith added “Natalie is a talented lawyer with many contacts across the business and farming communities. I feel that our practice areas have a great synergy and we will be able to work closely together to provide all encompassing advice for our clients. I am sure she will prove a significant asset to the firm while further strengthening our fast-growing presence as a top law firm in central Cheltenham”
