Michael Setter, senior partner at WBW Solicitors, has decided to retire.

Michael Setter has provided property advice, in particularly, agricultural property and substantial residential sales, since 1974.

Michael Setter, who has been with the firm for over 45 years, said: “I first visited Newton Abbot on a short stay in uniform at Denbury Camp Military Barracks and didn’t imagine for one day I would end up a lawyer working in Newton Abbot, something that I have thoroughly enjoyed. We have a great team here at WBW Solicitors and I am delighted that I shall be leaving my clients in very capable hands.

Steve Bulman, managing partner of WBW Solicitors, added: “During his 45 years with the firm Michael has seen us grow and develop through modernisation, mergers, and acquisitions. The Partners would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his significant contribution to the firm’s success and wish him a long and happy retirement. The Partners will miss Michael’s presence for many reasons, and I am sure that he will be missed by members of staff equally.

As from the 1st January 2021 the firm welcomes Tracey Pearce as their new Senior Partner.
