Wiltshire-based law firm Goughs Solicitors has welcomed Sarah Loveless to its 15-strong Private Client offering.

Sarah brings with her expertise that complements the nationally-recognised team and will work with clients on matters relating to wills, estate administration, LPAs and deputyship applications.

Being a Dementia Friend, TEP (Trust and Estate Practitioner) and a full member of SFE (Solicitors for the Elderly), Sarah’s expertise will greatly add to the wealth of knowledge already within the Goughs Private Client team. 

With a career spanning 18 years, Sarah joins Goughs from BLB Solicitors. She will be based at the firm’s Melksham office, adding to the already strong family, residential property and private client offerings. 

In her new role – which she started on Tuesday 25th April – Sarah will report directly to Emma Taylor who is Equity Partner and Head of the Private Client Team. She takes over from Maxine Coles, who is moving to the firm’s Trowbridge office. 

On Sarah’s appointment, Emma said, “This is such an exciting time for everyone at Goughs. We are attracting top-level legal talent to all of our teams and are contributing significantly to the partnership of the firm. Sarah’s reputation within private client law is exceptional and to have her join as a key part of the firm’s strategic plans and vision moving forward is wonderful – we are delighted to have her on board.” 

Sarah added, “The reputation Goughs has built over the years is unrivalled in Wiltshire and beyond, so to be joining, particularly as a Partner, is a career high for me. I am excited to have the opportunity to work with the firm on their plans for further growth over the coming years. Moreover, as a lawyer, I enjoy meeting clients, listening to them and building long lasting relationships with families. Knowing that Goughs truly values trusted relationships with clients gives me full confidence that I will be surrounded with like-minded individuals who offer exceptional client care.”
