Liz is a Senior Solicitor in Oglethorpe, Sturton & Gillibrand’s well established and respected Private Client team based in our Lancaster and Kirkby Lonsdale offices.

Liz’s  specialism is in assisting and advising a wide range of clients on a broad spectrum of matters, particularly High Net Worth clients, business owners and farming families in the preparation of Wills, Trusts, Succession and Tax planning, Probate, Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection applications. Liz’s previous career as a company director and production planner in the agricultural industry really helps her to understand things from a clients’ perspective.

Liz loves speaking with people and meeting clients from all walks of life. Her approach is a very holistic and practical one – it isn’t about getting clients in and out – it is very important to listen and find out what clients want to achieve, so we can work together with themselves, their families, and their advisors to obtain the best possible outcome.

Liz qualified as a Solicitor in 2007, having combined full time work with her studies. Before joining us at Oglethorpe, Sturton & Gillbrand in July 2021, Liz spent time with Irwin Mitchell Solicitors and, before that, 6 years with Napthens LLP, Southport, as Associate Solicitor and Head of Office.

Liz’s main passion is horses, having qualified in her younger days as a BHSAI instructor, and enjoys getting out and about with her ex-racehorse.
