Brachers has welcomed Alexandra Gordon, partner to its Private Client team.

Alexandra is a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, the leading international network of experts in family inheritance and succession planning. Outside of work, Alexandra is a dedicated ambassador for excellent legal services in the county; she has a long-standing involvement with the Kent Law Society, of which she will become Vice President in May 2019, she acts as Director of the Kent Law Society Services Limited and she has been an advisor for the award-winning Law Clinic at the University of Kent since 2010 and has recently been asked to join their management committee.
Brachers has one of the largest private client teams in Kent and offers a full range of legal services for families and individuals. She joins an established and highly regarded team, which continues to grow in size and capability.
It is a very exciting move for me to join a firm with such an excellent reputation and exceptional expertise. I look forward to helping with the further development of the team going forward.
Christopher Eriksson-Lee, Head of Private Client said:
Alexandra has an astute awareness of identifying when tax could be an issue and the impact of subsequent advice on other legal issues, enabling her to provide a holistic service to her clients. She has received high praise from her clients and the UK’s leading legal directories, having been highlighted as an ‘Associate to watch’ in Chambers High Net Worth 2018 and as a ‘Next Generation Lawyer’ in Legal 500 2017. We are delighted to welcome Alexandra to the team.
