A firm of chartered accountants has welcomed a seasoned solicitor from Sutterton to its probate team.

Graham England has joined Duncan & Toplis Probate Services Ltd where he will be handling wills, assisting with powers of attorney, and advising on probate, tax, and inheritance matters.

Mr England said: “I previously worked in practice in Spalding and Boston for more than 30 years and I’m excited to join Duncan & Toplis as I’ve known them for a very long time.”

Mr England will be based in Boston and Grantham, but will be working across all 11 Duncan & Toplis sites, adding: “I’m hoping my experience and my ability to work with a wide variety of clients will prove to be useful.”

It is only in recent years that chartered accountants have been able to offer probate services.

Graeme Hills, head of legal practice, said: “Graham joins our team at an exciting time. It has been a very promising start since we launched the probate service and his years of experience and local knowledge will help us offer even more to our clients.”
