Experience

Experience

Born and bred in Yorkshire, Derek had a short spell in Cheshire attending the College of Law in Chester before returning to his roots upon qualifying as a solicitor in 2006.

Following qualification as a solicitor, Derek worked for the same Yorkshire-based Legal500-recognised firm for 15 years, during which time he attained the Society for Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) Diploma, a qualification signifying his expertise and specialism in Wills and Estate administration.

Derek joined Berwins in June 2021 as a Senior Associate in the firm's Life team, and has added extra strength and depth to the rapidly-growing department.

Hobbies

Hobbies

Outside of work, Derek enjoys sports, particularly Rugby union (watching rather than participating these days) and getting outdoors with his family for long walks and hikes. Derek also enjoys gardening and DIY, which he finds useful as there are always jobs that need doing around the house.
