National law firm Irwin Mitchell has recruited a new solicitor to its Private Client Services team in Leeds.

Daniel Cooil joins as a solicitor from Thornton Jones, having qualified in 2019. Daniel is an expert in advising business owners on estate and succession planning and wealth protection through wills, trusts, and family investment companies among others.

He is also experienced in advising landed and rural clients on succession and estate planning, having worked with high-net-worth individuals with cross-border estates.

Daniel can help clients with all aspects of wills, estate planning, trusts, probate, and powers of attorney. He also has previously advised on contentious probate matters and claims under the Inheritance Act 1975.

Daniel’s arrival follows a string of hires for the firm’s Northern Private Client Services expertise, including Leeds-based solicitor Helen Webster and Manchester-based solicitor Fiona Bushell in May this year. The Northern teams are headed by partner and chair of STEP Yorkshire, Andrea Jones.
