Yates Legal was founded by qualified Solicitor, Karen Yates, to provide specialist advice in an affordable and approachable way.

Karen qualified as a Solicitor in 2007 having completed a Masters degree in Law at the University of Leeds, and the Legal Practice Course (LPC) at BPP Law School. In 2016, Karen became a full member of the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners (STEP), enabling her to use the designation TEP, a highly regarded accreditation within the industry.

During her career, Karen has worked in a number of well known law firms across the North West, most recently as Head of the Private Client team at a firm in Manchester city centre.

Karen is highly experienced in all matters relating to Wills & Estate Planning; Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs); and the administration of estates. She provides carefully tailored advice in jargon-free, plain English.

Karen’s specialism is in advising clients on the best way to structure their wills to reduce their inheritance tax liability and to plan for long term care. She also provides advice on Lasting Powers of Attorney, elderly client matters and mental capacity issues.

For business owners, Karen provides advice relating to succession planning, mitigating inheritance tax and ensuring all available reliefs such as Business Property Relief (BPR) are fully utilised.

Outside of work Karen enjoys spending time with her family, long walks with her Beagle cross dog and running.
