Meet the private client team - Jane Whitfield

In response to increasing demand for our Private Client services, Barrett & Co is delighted to make a new partner announcement.

Senior Solicitor, Jane Whitfield, has stepped up as the firm seeks to develop further the specialist area in which Jane practises.

Senior Partner, Hilary Buckle, said of Jane’s promotion:

“In this incredibly unsettling and challenging time, it is great to have some good news to share. Jane enjoys a favourable reputation with clients from all walks of life and we are thrilled to bring her credible skills and experience into the partnership.”

Jane joined Barrett & Co in 2015, initially as a part-time locum when the Private Client team needed an extra pair of hands. Then, in 2016, having been with the firm for over a year, Jane was invited to come on board as a permanent member of staff.

As a senior member of the Private Client team, Jane was appointed as Head of Trusts & Charities in 2019, and is expanding the charity law services offered by the firm.

Her love of the technical side of legal matters, and also the ability to be able to balance estate accounts, have earned Jane the treasured title within the Barrett & Co family of “The Geek”, an accolade of which Jane is very proud.

Jane is also the current President of the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Law Society and has represented the Law Society in a number of different guises.

Commenting on her promotion, Jane said: “I am thrilled  to be joining the partnership team, who I appreciate both personally and professionally. I am excited to be a part of ambitious projects at the firm, and I am ready to strengthen the synergies between my practice and other departments”.
