Blake Morgan has once again been named as a leader in private client services for wealthy individuals in a listing which identifies the UK’s top law firms.
The firm’s private client practice is one of 46 law firms listed by eprivateclient, in a survey which singles out firms providing high quality and professional advice and support to domestic and international clients. The rankings are based on a survey of more than 140 law firms, taking into account a number of factors including reputation, quality of service and extent of the firm’s private client offering.
Helen Bunker, Divisional Director of Private Law at Blake Morgan, said: “In these unsettled times, it is more important than ever that clients have trusted advisers who understand their needs. At Blake Morgan, we pride ourselves on developing close personal relationships in the knowledge that we are often the first port of call in the event of a change in a client’s personal, family or financial circumstances. We are delighted that the strength of Blake Morgan’s private client offering has been recognised in these highly-regarded rankings.”
Blake Morgan provides all of the traditional private client services of a top 50 law firm, and takes pride in niche offerings such as family mediation, wealth preservation, non-domiciled tax advice, US/UK tax planning, leasehold enfranchisement, driver defence, dispute resolution and claims against professionals.
The private law team at Blake Morgan act for high net-worth individuals; entrepreneurs and owners of business; farms and estates; and families that require advice on succession and tax, residential property or sensitive family issues spanning divorce, mediation and mental capacity.
The team is committed to delivering a personal service and has a solid reputation for providing innovative solutions to meet the needs of their clients. The Legal 500 directory notes “they break down complex issues into an understandable and user-friendly format”, while the Chambers directory agrees “They give very clear explanations without the jargon.”
