We are delighted that our Private Client team won Emerging Practice of the Year at the inaugural Chambers High Net Worth Awards ceremony on Thursday 22 November.
Our remarkable growth during the past year and ever improving team, as recently further bolstered by the arrivals of Jonathan Burt and Siena Gold, were cited as reasons for our success.
A well-regarded London private wealth adviser said that: “what I like the most is their targeted operational model – they set goals, go through milestones, keep you always updated; it’s an old-fashioned way of doing things, with a very entrepreneurial spirit.”
Another interviewee echoed this sentiment, saying that: “they have an entrepreneurial approach – they’re a friendly and approachable group of lawyers.”
Chambers’ researchers also recognised the Firm’s strong reputation for media law and notable practice in working with international ultra high net worth individuals, particularly praising our forward-thinking approach to this work and our strong presence in the big-money divorce market, following the successful integration of Catherine Bedford and her excellent family law team.
Glen Atchison, Managing Partner and Head of the Private Client Group said: “This is a fantastic achievement for the team and the Firm, especially given the competition in the market and particularly in the shortlist.”
The Chambers High Net Worth researchers compiled the nominations by interviewing thousands of lawyers, clients and third party advisers, with winners representing the cream of the UK and off-shore legal profession.
