KENDAL law firm Harrison Drury has recruited Jan Wright to head up its wills and probate team.

Jan, who is a founder member of Solicitors for the Elderly and serves on the UK practice committee of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, moves from Penrith-based Cartmell Shepherd.

She said: “Harrison Drury is a firm with a growing reputation in Cumbria and I am very pleased to be able to help strengthen its private client offering in the region.”
