 ‘On Heir’ The Podcast! Probate Professionals BTS

‘On Heir’ The Podcast! Probate Professionals BTS

Finders International, one of the UK’s leading probate genealogy firms and stars of BBC One show Heir Hunters, joins the podcast revolution with the aptly named “On Heir” Podcast, the first podcast to come out of the Probate Genealogy industry.

The “On Heir” Podcast delves BTS (behind the scenes) with legal industry leaders. Each month, Finders International’s senior business development manager David Lockwood hosts a 30-minute discussion (split into two 15mins bite-sized episodes) in which he extracts insights from those working in the probate and private client industries by looking at the person behind the subject.

From Publisher to Probate

Finders International’s Louise Levene has been a previous guest on the show and shared how she landed her role as a research specialist in International Assets. “It was a bit of an accident; I was thinking more generally, why work in the legal sector?”

Louise first worked in Publishing before moving to Private Genealogy work, which led her into the role she is in today. “It’s a logical move for me because the work I now do in terms of repatriating assets and dealing with things like foreign probates and foreign banking institutions and transfer agents and share registrars, there is a little bit more scope perhaps to say, right, what do we need to do? Let’s just do it rather than necessarily working to specific processes.”

Louise also touches on fraud and how she comes across those affected by inheritance scams. “I’ve had numerous calls from people, and they have either been scammed or they’re in the grip of a scam, and it’s absolutely heartbreaking. These scammers are criminals, and they know exactly what they’re doing – they appeal to your need.”

What’s next?

“On Heir” has some exciting guests lined up for the rest of the year, including; Paige Gouldthorpe, Court of Protection Specialist & Deputy Head of Wills, Trusts and Probate at Fosters Solicitors, Amy Lay, President at American Global Heir Search, Maeve Mullin, Director of Finders International Ireland and Alexandra Gordon, Partner at Tassells solicitors.

“On Heir” is available now on all major streaming services. See here for further details: https://www.findersinternational.co.uk/e-conferences/on-heir-podcast/
