Our status as a nationwide leader in the legal sector has been further cemented by another strong year as we continue to support clients with a broad range of agricultural, estate, family and tax matters. We are particularly delighted to maintain our position as the only top ranked law firm in Essex and also to receive recognition for providing specialist expertise, at a standard that is frequently compared with major City firms, whilst maintaining a personal service.
