Burnett Barker welcomes new Senior Executive to the team

Burnett Barker Solicitors, based in Bury St Edmunds, has welcomed Senior Private Client Executive, Richard Welton, to their 30-strong team.

Specialising in Wills, Trusts and Probate, Richard is a full member of STEP (the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners), as well as CILEx – the professional body for Chartered Legal Executives, legal practitioners and paralegals.  Richard brings with him a wealth of experience, following 25 years in the legal sector.

Having joined the civil service after school, Richard, by his own admission, ‘fell’ into a career in law after working within his father’s business, drafting estate and trust accounts for clients. Enjoying the work so much, he decided to pursue a legal career – beginning his first permanent role in private practice in 1996.

Speaking of the appointment, Daryl Griffiths, CEO at Burnett Barker Solicitors said: “We are delighted to welcome Richard to the team. Not only is he highly experienced, but he is a wonderfully approachable individual who epitomises the Burnett Barker ethos of providing straightforward, friendly legal advice to all our clients. Wills and Probate is an extremely busy department for us here at Burnett Barker and Richard is already making a difference to the lives of the individuals and families we act for”.

Over the years Richard has also provided training on the subject of trust and estate preparation to other solicitors, and is widely regarded as an expert in this area.

Richard’s role at Burnett Barker Solicitors is dedicated to helping families plan for their futures; whether drafting a Will or advising on lasting powers of attorney, along with protection of the vulnerable and family businesses.

In his spare time, Richard is a keen golfer and enjoys spending time with his wife and dog as they look forward to becoming grandparents for the first time.
