Marianne Nankervis, a contentious probate and trusts specialist, joins Veale Wasbrough Vizards’ (VWV) contentious probate team, the largest outside of London as a senior associate.
Marianne, who has worked at Wilde Sapte and most recently Osborne Clarke, joins the firm to continue her work acting for professional executors and trustees as well as private clients in a wide range of disputes arising out of contested estates and trusts.
A client of Marianne’s, from a leading private bank describes her as someone “with the necessary expertise and gravitas”. And in recent Chambers’ editions, they quote her as being “unflappable and experienced and is a well-respected player, having a strong track record”.
Marianne commented on her appointment:
“I have always admired the quality of the work undertaken in the contentious probate team at VWV and am excited about joining them. I have spent 15 years building my contacts, especially within the private banking and wealth divisions of banks and I am looking forward to bringing my experience to the team and the firm.”
Michelle Rose, head of private client and the contentious probate team said:
“We have an enviable reputation with our peers for having the largest contentious probate team outside of London. This is a very specialised area and not many firms can say that they can do this work, at our level. Marianne’s arrival complements the team and means that we can increase our profile in the private banking sector.”
