Jackamans’ Wills and Probate department – looking to the future

Nigel Steed recently retired from the firm after working as a Consultant with us for more than ten years following Jackamans’ merger with Nigel Steed and Co in 2009.  Mr Steed is well known in Suffolk and his charming personality and professionalism will be very much missed by his Jackamans’ colleagues.  Nigel’s career began at 17 when he became an articled clerk to his father at Greene Morgan Greene.  After qualifying as a solicitor in 1971 he specialised in wills, probate and conveyancing matters.

If Mr Steed previously acted for you, other members of our Private Client team will be very happy to assist you. Here is an insight into our teams at Felixstowe and Ipswich.
