Leading legal practice in South Devon, WBW Solicitors LLP, continues to expand with new recruits who have a wealth of experience in a number of areas. We are delighted to welcome Laura Brutti and Stephen Toft to our team.

Laura, who will be based in Newton Abbot, has taken on the role of Tax and Trust Administrator in the Private Client Department. She joined the firm in March and is experienced in a broad range of tax advisory work having previously been employed by another local firm and as a specialist tax tester at Thomson Reuters.

“I have extensive experience in preparing estate and trust accounts, tax returns, investment accounts and I have a sound understanding of wills and IHT returns,” Laura said. “It is fantastic to join a local company which is committed to establishing itself as one of the strongest legal practices in the area.”

Laura is also studying for the STEP Diploma in Trusts and Estates and outside of work she has a keen interest in walking her dogs and spending time with her children and friends.

Stephen Toft is already a STEP member and has been taken on as a Senior Private Client Advisor with substantial experience in all areas of this field and will specialise in matters relating to Wills and Probate. He joined the firm in March from an established South Devon firm.

He moved to Devon 20 years ago, and happily settled in the Torbay area. His interests include travelling, history and sport. On his appointment, Stephen said: “South Devon is a beautiful part of the world to live in. I am delighted to be able to take on a new challenge with a growing and established company which offer a full range of legal services to their current and future clients.”
