We are pleased to report that the latest edition of the legal directory Chambers and Partners highlights the firm’s strong performance in a range of departments.
Five departments are listed: Private Client, Family, Agriculture & Rural Affairs, Charities, and Contentious Trusts, and eight partners are specifically recommended as Notable Practitioners.
The Family Department has moved up to Band 4 and our lawyers are praised for their client care, “attention to detail and ability to fight their clients’ corner when necessary”. We are particularly pleased that we appear in the Charities and Contentious Trusts sections for the first time, both in Band 4. Our Senior Partner and head of Charities, Paul Almy, is described as “charming, extremely enthusiastic and extremely hard working” and Richard Kershaw is commended as calm and pragmatic in Contentious Trusts.
Our Agriculture and Rural Affairs team are described as taking “great pains and ensure the right avenues are explored”, while our Private Client department is praised for their “high quality personal service”, “extensive expertise” and “the degree of care shown in dealing with complicated matters”.
