Dickinson Dees sets up wealth team for women

North East firm Dickinson Dees has launched an all-woman wealth management team to target the lucrative market of independently wealthy ;women ;in ;the region.

The team kicked off with an event for 56 of its female clients hosted by a style and image consultant, from which it received two instructions. Wealth ;management partner Helen Tavroges said: “A lot of law firm events are for men, like rugby or cigar events. We thought we were missing a market – there are a lot of women out there who are very wealthy.”

She added: “Women are really busy creatures and we’ll try to sell the message that women look at things differently and are much more practical than men.”
