Experienced legal executive Heather Wannell has come full circle by joining the firm she first undertook work experience with.

Heather has joined the Private Client team at leading Wiltshire law firm Bevirs Law, and will be based in the Royal Wootton Bassett office.

She is a Chartered Legal Executive who has been working in the legal sector since 1988, and has a wealth of experience in Wills, Probate and Lasting Powers of Attorney.  

“This is an exciting opportunity for me, as I started my life in the legal profession when I undertook work experience with Bevirs Law in 1984,” said Heather. 

“From that moment on I knew that I wanted a career in law, and now I feel that I have come home to practice in a firm that has an outstanding reputation and that I have known for many years.”  

Bevirs Law, which also has offices in Swindon and Calne, has been a leading multi-disciplinary law firm in Wiltshire since 1885. As well as dealing with Wills and Probate, the firm has specialists in Family Law, Conveyancing, Commercial and Litigation.  

Heather was born and brought up in Royal Wootton Bassett. Her parents were each Mayor of the town twice, and she has strong connections to the local community.  

In her spare time Heather helps to restore and show her family’s vintage fire engines, which are well known in the area.  

Given Heather’s hobbies, she understands the needs of vintage vehicle enthusiasts, whether it’s classic cars and motor bikes or steam traction engines, and how important it is for their treasured vehicles to be cared for in the future.  

She said: “The aspect of my work that I particularly enjoy is meeting people and listening to their life stories to ensure that their legal matters are dealt with sensitively and effectively, whilst tailored to their own unique circumstances.”

Nicholas Sewell, Senior Partner at Bevirs Law and Head of the Private Client team, said: “We are delighted to welcome Heather to the Private Client team at Bevirs and specifically to the Royal Wootton Bassett office. 

“Heather brings with her a wealth of experience gained at other Wiltshire based practices over many years. She is highly respected in her field and is a trusted adviser to generations of local people. 

"She also has deep local connections to the Royal Wootton Basett community and is indeed a local resident of many years standing.”
