Birketts’ private client team announced as national winners at The Legal 500 UK Awards 2015
Top 100 law firm, Birketts, has been named as the UK regional private client firm of the year, at The 2015 Legal 500 UK Awards.
Tim Galloway, head of Birketts' private client division, commented: “We are thrilled to win this award which recognises the strides we have made in becoming a leading firm outside London for the provision of private client, family and agricultural law advice, and a beacon for clients, fellow professionals and potential recruits across the region, nationally and, indeed, internationally. We have steadily grown over recent years, both organically and through lateral hires, to become one the largest private client teams in the region, with over 60 expert advisory staff based in Cambridge, Chelmsford, Ipswich and Norwich providing contentious and non-contentious advice, to a wide variety of clients ranging from landed estates to business owners, from banks and trust companies to entrepreneurs, farmers and professionals.”
CEO Jonathan Agar added: "The private client team has built a first-class reputation in the market for providing clear legal advice and the highest standards of client service and this recognition is well deserved. It is testament to the commitment and dedication of the whole private client division. To receive this award, after winning the corporate and commercial accolade at The Legal 500 UK Awards last year, cements our reputation for our premier full legal service offering.”
