The Taunton office of Clarke Willmott LLP has grown with the appointment of a new partner in the private client team.

Having lived and worked in rural Somerset his whole life, Tom’s work has a strong focus on agricultural issues, in particular the transfer of farms and businesses to the next generation. He is  a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.

Anthony Fairweather, Managing Partner of the Clarke Willmott private client division, said: “We are very excited to welcome Tom Chiffers to the team. Tom trained at Clarke Willmott some years ago and has now rejoined as a partner to work alongside David Maddock and Stuart Thorne in the Taunton office.

“Tom is joining one of the largest and most diverse private client practices in the UK and we welcome his knowledge and experience. The Taunton team has an excellent reputation in providing advice in particular to farmers, landowners and other rural businessmen.  With his agricultural expertise, Tom is a perfect fit for the team and a great asset to the practice.”
