A lawyer has moved to the Edward Hands & Lewis legal firm in Market Harborough.
Kate Godber (pictured, far right) has become part of the tax and trusts team and is now the branch manager for the Edward Hands & Lewis’ Market Harborough office, having previously been with Shakespeares.
The town’s branch of the firm is based at 1B Stable Block at The Union Wharf canal basin off Leicester Road.
Kate has extensive legal and tax experience and is a private client solicitor, able to assist with wills, probate, powers of attorney, family law and trusts.
She is also dual qualified as a chartered tax adviser.
She will be teaming up with the firm’s specialist tax advisor Leanne Hathaway.

Kate added: “This is a fantastic opportunity and I’m looking forward to shaping the firm’s tax and trusts offering.”
Edward Hands and Lewis’ Market Harborough office is at Union Wharf.
Formed in 18907, it also has offices in Leicester and London.
With nearly 30 staff members and 15 fee earners, the town’s branch has doubled in size in the past two years.
It moved to the canal basis site in December 2012.
