Birketts, the leading law firm based in East Anglia, has been ranked ‘Band 1’ in the ‘Private Wealth Law’ category in Cambridge, Ipswich and Essex and ‘Band 2’ in Norwich in this year’s Chambers High Net Worth 2017 Guide.
The guide identifies the world’s leading high net worth advisers and notably, Birketts is listed as the only law firm to be ranked in the top tier in Essex and Suffolk.
Chambers High Net Worth Guide also features listings and information about many of the top accountancy and tax firms, private banks, wealth management firms and multi-family offices acting for high net worth individuals. The guide is used by family offices and professional advisers as a key reference point for private wealth management work and related specialisms.
Tim Galloway, Head of Birketts' Private Client Division, commented: “This year’s guide rightly recognises our premier advisory offering and acknowledges the range and depth of legal prowess that increasingly puts distance between us and our regional competitors.”
He continued: “Birketts’ Private Client Group dominates the provision of private client, family and agricultural law advice in the region, and is well respected nationally and internationally, having won back-to-back national awards: we were named as the UK Regional Private Client Firm of the Year at The Legal 500 Awards for two years running. We have one the largest private client groups 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.”
