We were delighted to be asked to take part in the Ilkley Grammar school careers ...
Stuart joined Walker Foster straight from school in 1982. He trained as a Legal Executive and progressed to Solicitor in 2005 when in the same year he became a partner in the firm.
Stuart is head of residential conveyancing and is responsible for the smooth running of the department and the education and training of all conveyancing fee earners and assistants spread across our four offices. He has practiced from our Silsden office for a number of years which has given him a clear understanding and sound knowledge of the town’s local people and businesses. He is extremely well connected and respected in Silsden and across much of the Aire Valley and has well established relationships with many local estate agents, financial advisors and other local businesses.
As well as being head of conveyancing, Stuart acts for clients requiring private client services such as Wills, Probate and Trusts. With his extensive knowledge of Inheritance tax planning, he represents clients in inheritance tax matters, many of which include agricultural and business elements.
Community is important to Stuart and he proudly supports a number of local charities and community projects, which can include providing free legal advice and assistance.
Stuart believes that the success of the firm’s conveyancing department is down to the strong and personal relationships with our clients who go away at the end of the transaction happy and secure in the knowledge that they have had the very best service, so that they will return time and time again and recommend us to others. As head of the department, he encourages all conveyancing fee earners to work in this way, setting us apart from many of our competitors. This close personal approach to serving clients is ultimately what helps us grow and prosper.
