• In this week’s ‘60 seconds with…’ interview, we speak to Brachers Partner Deborah Cain.

    Deborah specialises in disputes and litigation concerning or connected to wills, trusts, the estates of deceased persons, and all other inheritance-related issues. She also deals with matters relating to the abuse of the elderly.

    How long have you worked at Brachers?

    Just over three years.

    What made you get into law?

    Youthful idealism and a talent for being persuasive (some might say argumentative).

    What advice would you give to your younger self?

    Savour every minute of life, but try to get a few more early nights. Don’t waste your money betting on England winning the World Cup, but put a few on Leicester City winning the Premiership in 2016.

    What’s been the top highlight of your career so far?

    There have been a few, but if I had to select one it would be the day I won a substantial sum of money for a widow whose husband had decided to leave her out of his will, and whose children fought tooth and nail to give her only a comparatively small share of the estate.

    It was a hard fought case but I was confident we would win. My client was elderly and so anxious about her future security it was a delight to see that anxiety evaporate and be replaced with elation when I was able to tell her that we had won and that her costs would be paid by the other side.

    Sum up working at Brachers in three words

    Progressive. Dynamic. Team.
