Senior appointment for Aaron and Partners’ Contentious Estates team
The Wills, Trusts and Tax department at legal firm Aaron and Partners has announced a senior appointment to help meet increasing demand from private clients.
Vlad Macdonald-Munteanu joins as a Senior Associate, specialising in contested wills, trusts and estates. The new hire adds a range of experience to the firm, having specialised in the resolution of contentious probate matters for the last six years and being listed in both the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners directories – two coveted industry guides.
Vlad’s appointment will see him help to deal with high value and complex claims for a wide range of clients. He is known for taking a personable approach and has successfully pursued claims in the High Court and Court of Appeal, as well as resolving matters through a variety of alternative methods.
“I’m very pleased to be joining Aaron and Partners and to be part of a team that is already so well regarded,” said Vlad.
“The Wills, Trusts and Tax team at Aaron and Partners has an outstanding reputation for delivering outcomes that focus on clients’ needs and I’m looking forward to being able to strengthen the services they offer and enable us to help even more clients across the country.”
Clive Pointon, Partner and Head of Wills, Trusts and Tax at Aaron and Partners said, “We’re very pleased to welcome Vlad to the team. His appointment comes following increased demand of new instructions and additional work for clients seeking expert advice in contentious probate matters.”
Vlad will be working remotely from Cardiff but will be supporting the firm’s Chester and Shrewsbury-based teams following a rise in enquiries and instructions relating to contested estates probate.
He is also a member of The Association of Contentious Trusts and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS) - a forum for leading specialists in contentious trust and probate work.
Clive added: “Vlad has a fantastic reputation and a wealth of experience in dealing with complex claims, and with remote working much more prevalent, we’re delighted that he will now be supporting our teams in Chester and Shrewsbury, as well as growing our offering in South Wales too.”
