Specialist elderly client and incapacity lawyer Edward Vidnes has been made a partner in the Bath office of UK Top 100 law firm Royds Withy King.
Ed is part of the firm’s 30-strong Bath private client team and specialises in later life issues, working closely with individuals and their families on a wide variety of issues covering Wills, Powers of Attorney and Deputyships, Personal Injury Trusts and Estate Administrations.
James McNeile, head of the private client team at Royds Withy King, said: “We are delighted to announce Ed’s promotion to partner which is well-deserved recognition for his hard work and dedication to his clients, colleagues and the wider firm. Throughout his career Ed has proved himself to be a highly skilled and motivated professional who is highly regarded by his peers and the many elderly clients and families that work with him.”
Ed, who is an affiliate member of STEP (Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) and a fully accredited member of SFE (Solicitors for the Elderly) said:
“Since joining Royds Withy King four years ago, I have been lucky to further my work in the area of elderly and incapacitated, while continuing to advise clients on Wills and Estate Administration. Since I joined the firm I’ve passed STEP’s Advanced Certificate in Advising Vulnerable People with distinction and become a Dementia Friend. This enables me to offer my clients a more specialist level of advice with a greater understanding of their needs. As the demographic of society continues to change and people live longer, the challenges in this evolving area make my work both challenging and enjoyable in equal measure.”
