Partner promotion for private client specialist

East Midlands law firm Bray & Bray has promoted experienced private client solicitor Russell Dalby to partner and joint head of the firm’s Wills, Trusts and Probate department.

In his new role, Russell will co-manage a team of eight Wills, Trusts and Probate specialists.

A full member of the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners (STEP), Russell will also act as a reference point on technical matters such as Inheritance Tax positions. Alongside co-head Andrew Hitchon, Russell will also be responsible for training and mentoring the team.

Commenting on his new role, Russell said: “I feel very passionately about coaching and mentoring team members to ensure they are continually cultivating their knowledge and skills.

“Andrew and I have already begun developing some in-house scenario training for the team, which complements our traditional focus of attending specialist seminars throughout the year. Keeping at the cutting edge of the latest legal developments will continue to be a core focus for us as we head into 2022.

“As partner, I look forward to expanding the profile of the team and nurturing relationships with existing and new clients. Bray & Bray has a reputation for listening closely to clients and truly understanding their needs, particularly during these challenging times, and this is something I am committed to preserving.”

Prior to joining Bray & Bray, Russell worked as a senior bank manager before retraining in law in 2010. He achieved the highest grade in the Legal Practice Course, before choosing to specialise in Wills, Trusts and Probate.

Tim Gladdle, senior partner and head of Corporate & Commercial Law at Bray & Bray, added: “Russell’s well-deserved promotion is in recognition of the significant role and contribution he has made to the firm’s ongoing growth, as well as his consistent hard work and steadfast dedication to the Wills, Trusts and Probate team and private clients.

“Bray & Bray remains committed to investing in our people and supporting their ambition and professional growth. I look forward to seeing Russell continue to excel in his new role.”
