Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business

New Welsh-Speaking Lawyer Joins Conwy Firm


A Welsh-speaking legal expert is “delighted” to join a growing firm which has recently opened a new office in North Wales.

Dewi Jones, of Bangor, has joined Lanyon Bowdler’s new office in Conwy and will be working with people across the North Wales region to advise on Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney and other legal arrangements.

Having previously worked in Chester and Manchester, Dewi said he was delighted to be back in North Wales.

“It’s great to be joining the Lanyon Bowdler team in Conwy and helping to develop the firm’s private client department across the region,” he said.

“I enjoy private client work as I like dealing with people and enjoy building strong relationships with clients.

“I’m delighted to have returned home to North Wales and I’m looking forward to providing a high quality service to people in the area.”

Edward Nutting is head of Lanyon Bowdler’s Conwy office and said Dewi would be a valuable addition to the team.

“We have seen a big rise in demand for our services since our permanent base at the Riverside Business Park in Conwy opened earlier this year,” he said.

“The firm is fully committed to providing a wide range of legal services for Welsh residents and businesses, so I am very pleased to welcome another Welsh-speaker to the team.

“Dewi specialises in the private client area of law, including writing Wills where residential care home fee planning is a priority and where clients have business or agricultural assets.”

Dewi said one of his key priorities was to raise awareness of the importance of writing a Will.

He added:

“It is hugely important to write a Will to ensure your estate is managed in accordance with your wishes. Passing away without a Will means your estate will be distributed according to strict rules and loved ones may lose out.

“It’s also important to consider making Lasting Powers of Attorney, which let you choose who should manage your affairs and make decisions on your behalf, such as a family member or trusted friend, if you lose mental capacity.”
