Senior hire for Harrison Drury’s private client team

North West law firm Harrison Drury has recruited a new director to head up its private client team. 

Eve Carter – a specialist in Court of Protection and mental capacity issues – will be based at the firm’s Preston office and will advise clients and their families across the region.

Eve’s wider private client experience includes wills, probate, trusts, tax and later life issues. She joins Harrison Drury from Linder Myers solicitors and previously worked for London and South West firm Foot Antsey. 

John Chesworth, executive chairman of Harrison Drury, said: “Court of Protection is a sensitive area of law and it takes people with specific skills and personal qualities to advise clients and their families. Eve’s reputation in this field is outstanding and it’s a privilege to have her at Harrison Drury. 

“Eve takes our staff numbers to 110, up from around 85 this time last year, which is an indication of the significant growth we’re seeing across all areas of the firm.”

Eve added: “It’s feels great to be able to join such a well-regarded firm where you can also bring something new to the table. I’m looking forward to helping Harrison Drury further develop its private client offering, particularly in relation to complex mental capacity cases, but also in later life and elderly client matters.”

As a Court of Protection lawyer, Eve’s role is managing the financial affairs of those who do not have the capacity to do so. She is a member of Solicitors for the Elderly and the Court of Protection Practitioners Association. 

She has particular experience of managing the affairs of children and adults that have lost capacity through acquired brain injury (ABI) and brain injury at birth. She also deals with capacity loss through age-related brain conditions and learning disabilities.

Working closely with case managers, occupational therapists, support workers and financial advisers she has experience of managing large clinical negligence awards. In addition, she provides advice and support for clinical negligence lawyers during litigation of brain injury cases. 

She also has significant experience of dealing with complex financial abuse cases referred through the Office of the Public Guardian, as well as dealing with complex applications to the Court of Protection for gifting, inheritance tax planning and statutory wills.
