A NEW recruit has joined the Royds Withy King law firm which has an office in Swindon.

Stephanie Rees is now part of the company's Private Wealth division as a marketing and BD executive after moving from her previous role as global marketing manager at auction house Christies's, where she led on a number of high value international luxury campaigns.

The law firm's marketing and BD director Kevin Peake said: “I am delighted to have recruited Stephanie from Christie’s. Her experience in global markets and ultra high net worth clients will be invaluable in growing our proposition.

"Our unique Life Safe legacy offer has a section for art so I am sure Stephanie will help us highlight that to new clients.”

In her new role, Stephanie will help to develop Royds Withy King's offering, including its legacy management tool Life Safe, which allows clients to store all their legal and personal documents in one place, providing a place that their loved ones can access in the event of any issues.

The Private Wealth division at Royds Withy King has been shortlisted for three awards at the Citywealth awards ceremony in London.
