New addition to Michelmores' Disputed Wills and Trusts team makes it the largest in the South West

Michelmores has strengthened its Disputed Wills and Trusts team with the arrival of solicitor Barny Croft, making it the largest team specialising exclusively in disputes relating to wills, trusts and the administration of estates South West of Bristol.  

Barny joins the firm from a specialist charity law firm Stone King based in Bath and London. He previously trained with Michelmores in 2008 and practiced as a solicitor in Exeter for several years.  

Barny will be representing individual clients and charities across the country as part of the firm's existing team − which was recognised in last year's Legal 500 as one of the leading firms in the South West.

He will also work alongside the firm's Charity team and Private Wealth team, which recently won the prestigious City Wealth Winner in the Magic Circle Awards and STEP's Regional Legal Team of the Year.  

Tony Cockayne, Head of the Michelmores' Charity and Disputed Wills and Trusts teams said:

"It is wonderful to welcome Barny back to the firm and into the team.  The consistently positive feedback he receives from clients and his successes in difficult cases, marks Barny out as an up-and-coming solicitor in this niche area of law in the South West."

Barny Croft added:

"It is fantastic to be back at Michelmores and to join such a specialist, well-regarded team."
