Rachel Harding - Founder
ABOUT ME,
RACHEL HARDING

I am a lawyer and Director of Harding & Co Legal Services which I founded by in April 2020.  I am a Chartered Legal Executive, a full member of the Institute of Professional Will Writers and an affiliate member of STEP.

I began practising law in 2001 and, having previously worked in the area of litigation, since 2014 I have worked solely as an estate planning lawyer.  In my previous firm, which I also co-founded, I was the partner in charge of drafting all of the firm's wills and LPAs.

I am proud to work in collaboration with a team of experts, including financial advisors, mortgage brokers, trust experts and probate specialists to ensure a broad spectrum of help and advice is always on offer to my clients.

WHY CHOOSE HARDING & CO...

01

EXPERIENCE

I have succesfully founded and developed two estate planning companies and have over 20 years of experience in the legal field.  I have drafted an estimated 3000 wills, have successfully registered hundreds of Lasting Power of Attorney applications with the Office of the Public Guardian and I am committed to continually developing my knowledge in the estate planning field.

02

QUALIFICATIONS

I qualified as a Legal Executive (now called Charteted Legal Executive) in 2001 and I hold a current Practising Certificate with CILEX, licensing me to practice law. 

 

All wills, Lasting Powers of Attorneys and probate services are drafted or administered, therefore, by a qualified lawyer, namely either myself or, for probate, a team of experts at Premier Solicitors.

03

FULL IPW MEMBER

I am incredibly proud to be a full member of the Institute of Professional Will Writers, the gold standard for all estate planning practitioners.  In an industry that, sadly, remains unregulated, being an IPW member offers my clients reassurance that the IPW's strict Code of Conduct will be adhered to at all times and that a required level of quality, expertise and experience has been attained in order to gain and maintain full membership status.
