Lauren Smart

I am a Private Client Executive (GCILEx) in the Private Client Department.

The cases I handle include all aspects of estate administration, from obtaining Grant of Probate/Representation so that my clients can administer the estate themselves, to handling the full estate administration. I also advise on and prepare Lasting Powers of Attorneys and register Enduring Powers of Attorney.

I enjoy the variety that working within the Private Client Department brings, as no two cases are the same. My aim is to provide my clients with a personalised and efficient service.

Having previously graduated from Plymouth University in 2015 with a degree in Psychology I started my career with a local law firm and soon began studying with the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives. I joined Chubb Bulleid in April 2017 as a Trainee Legal Executive and have recently finished my final exams and became a Graduate Member of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives.

In my spare time, I enjoy baking, catching up with family and friends, finding new books to read and exploring the Somerset countryside.

Which would I choose?

Beach or countryside – This is a tough choice! Having grown up in Somerset I love having the wonderful countryside on my doorstep but I do love the beach and spent many a days by the sea during my time at Plymouth University.

Favourite season – My favourite season has to be summer as it is lovely to just be able to relax and sit in the garden with a good book in the sun,

Dog or Cat – Having always had a dog growing up it has to be dog, well that and the fact that I am allergic to cats!

Favourite Book – As an avid reader I have read many fantastic books, but I do particularly enjoy books by the author Robin Hobb.
