Bell & Buxton welcomes Josh Fenton-Hawkes

Bell & Buxton welcomes Josh Fenton-Hawkes


With over 12 years of experience he specialises in Wills, Trusts, and Probate

Josh's journey in law began in his hometown of Doncaster, where he was inspired by his mother's extensive career as a Property Lawyer spanning over 40 years. Starting at Atteys Solicitors, he initially worked in the Doncaster office before relocating to the Trippet Lane office in Sheffield to meet the growing demands of the firm.

Continuing his training under the guidance of the Head of the Wills, Trusts, and Probate Department, Josh played a key role in managing various aspects of Estate Planning. Following the closure of Atteys, he joined a local firm in North Nottinghamshire/southeast Doncaster, broadening his expertise in the Private Client area. His responsibilities included handling a diverse workload encompassing Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Probate and Estate Administration, Agricultural Estate Administration, and Court of Protection work.

In 2019, Josh embraced a significant opportunity, overseeing a newly opened office. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, he successfully built and led a team of four lawyers and six support staff over a four-year period.

Now at Bell & Buxton, Josh brings his background in Private Client work and a proven track record in management and business development. Excited about the prospects of 2024, he expressed his enthusiasm, stating, "I am thrilled to be joining Bell & Buxton and I look forward to settling into the role and helping to expand the business in 2024."

Matthew Rodgers, Partner at Bell & Buxton, echoed the excitement, emphasizing Josh's value to the team. "With his background in Private Client work and the boundless enthusiasm he brings, Josh will be a valuable addition to the team. This year is set to see the organization go through expansive growth, and Josh will help us achieve our goals."

As Bell & Buxton looks forward to a productive year, the addition of Josh Fenton-Hawkes signifies a strategic move towards strengthening their capabilities and achieving further success in the legal landscape.
