Hewitsons expands Private Wealth and Agriculture teams


Hewitsons has further strengthened two of its distinguished specialist teams in Cambridge with new appointments, as the law firm continues to invest heavily in legal talent.

Abbie Wiseman and Jennifer Koch have joined the Newmarket Road office as Solicitors, working with the firm’s Agriculture & Rural Property and Private Wealth teams, respectively.

Both teams have top-tier ratings in the prestigious 2019 Legal 500 guide, which ranks law firms and solicitors based on the results of extensive research, including client feedback interviews. The guide also names several Partners from these teams as ‘leading individuals’ within their respective practice areas.

Abbie brings with her experience in a variety of legal matters, from the acquisition of land for development and sales, and purchases of farms and agricultural land, to property-backed financing for agricultural estates. She has also worked in Commercial Property.

She said: “I’m delighted to be joining Hewitsons’ highly respected Agriculture & Rural Property team, working alongside some of the best practitioners in this area of law. I look forward to bringing my experience to a new set of clients to help deliver the results and ‘Absolute Client Focus’ for which Hewitsons is known.”

Jennifer has experience with, and will be responsible for, the full range of Private Wealth work, from Wills, Probate and Inheritance Tax to Succession Planning and Lasting Powers of Attorney. She is also a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).

She said: “Hewitsons’ Private Wealth team in Cambridge is highly regarded and, like many other of the firm’s specialist practice areas, rapidly expanding, so it’s great to be a part of it.”

The appointments follow numerous other additions to Hewitsons’ many specialist teams – across the firm’s offices in Cambridge, London, Milton Keynes and Northampton – over the past two years.

During the past 12 months in particular, the firm has invested more heavily than ever in top legal talent, as well as everything from IT systems to infrastructure.

This has come on the back of record revenue and profit levels, as well as numerous impressive legal successes, some prestigious contract wins and further accolades.

Managing Partner Colin Jones said: “We look forward to yet another year of expansion and investment at Hewitsons in 2019. As part of this, I am pleased to be welcoming Abbie and Jennifer into our fold. Both have strong track records and will be valuable assets for the firm as we continue to grow.”
