Woodfines Solicitors has today (1st April 2016) appointed two new Partners to the firm. Charlotte Benjamin, a Commercial Property specialist in the firm’s Sandy office, and Karl Dembicki, who is an expert in Wills, Trusts and Probate matters in the firm’s Cambridge office, both have been appointed following positions as Senior Associates at Woodfines.
Charlotte joined Woodfines in early 2015, following over 20 years of experience as a Commercial Property solicitor, acting for individuals, corporate clients and lenders. Her extensive experience includes acting for landlords of shopping centres, leisure parks and industrial estates, and she also handles development projects from conception to completion.
Charlotte also heads up Woodfines’ Agriculture and Rural Property team, working alongside a highly skilled group of lawyers with interests and experience in agribusiness and rural land/property.
Karl joined Woodfines as part of the firm’s merger with long-established legal firm, Ginn & Co, in Cambridge in 2013. Following a career in both the church and banking, Karl brings a wealth of experience which allows him to provide the highest level of advice to his clients. He advises on all manner of private client matters, including wills, trusts, probate, inheritance tax planning, capital gains tax planning, powers of attorney, court of protection applications, and elderly and vulnerable client matters.
Karl is also a full member of STEP (Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners) and was elected as vice president of the Cambridgeshire and District Law Society in March 2016.
Woodfines’ Managing Partner, Adrian Frost, said: “We are delighted to appoint both Charlotte and Karl to the position of Partner with Woodfines, which is a reflection of the contribution they have brought to the firm, their fantastic knowledge of their respective areas of the law, and the care and dedication they show to their clients. We are sure that they will continue to demonstrate their expertise in supporting our clients across Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire.”
