Ridley and Hall boosts private client team with appointment of another associate

Deborah Kaye who has joined Ridley and Hall

Expanding Huddersfield-based law firm, Ridley and Hall, is growing its specialist private client team with the appointment of Deborah Kaye as an associate solicitor.

With 20 years’ experience dealing with private client matters, Deborah has spent the majority of her career working at Ramsdens Solicitors and is well known in the Holme Valley having spent 14 years working from the firm’s Holmfirth branch office. She joins from LCF Law in Bradford where she spent the last four years.

Deborah has practiced in all areas of private client work including both pre and post-death matters such as Wills, Powers of Attorney, Inheritance tax planning, advising the elderly, trusts and probate.

Emma Pearmaine, managing director at Ridley and Hall, commented: “Having established a name for ourselves as experts in private client work, including being shortlisted in 2018 for a national and international industry award with Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP), we are undergoing a period of sustained growth, largely as a result of client recommendation.

“With her solid track record in private client law, Deborah will further strengthen the Huddersfield team, enabling us to continue to provide high level technical expertise together with the high standards of client care for which we are renowned.”

Deborah said: “As soon as I met Emma and the private client team, I was in no doubt that Ridley and Hall was a place where I could see myself working – human and caring with a great staff ethos and a strong professional reputation. The firm’s culture is a really good fit with my own values. It’s great to be working with the local community again back in Huddersfield, re-engaging with contacts as well as having the opportunity to meet and form new ones.”

With offices in Huddersfield, Leeds and Pontefract, Ridley and Hall has a 71-strong team.
