Lawyers in the Private Wealth teams at Blake Morgan are celebrating the publication of the 2023 rankings from the Chambers High Net Worth Guide – which recognises and recommends the best performing lawyers and firms advising on private wealth across the UK.
This year saw four of Blake Morgan’s expert Private Wealth Law teams ranked as the highly-regarded Band 2. For the Private Wealth Disputes team, this marks the first time they have been ranked in the guide, and the team from the Southampton region has risen from Band 3 to Band 2.
The guide shares glowing testimonials from Blake Morgan clients, who praise the teams’ knowledge, “well-considered” advice, responsiveness, and ability to “unravel and explain” complex wealth matters.
The Chambers rankings also recognise leading individual lawyers in the private wealth space, and five Blake Morgan experts were singled out. Partners Lisa Davies, James Greig and Paula Shea were all ranked, with James described by a client as “reliable, robust, able to appreciate nuance and manage complicated relationships well” and Paula Shea praised as a “very good, strong practitioner” who is “reliable, efficient and friendly.” Two Blake Morgan lawyers were selected as ‘associates to watch’ – Jonathan Sleep and Nicky Sherrard.
Helen Bunker, Head of Private Client at Blake Morgan, said:
Congratulations to all our hard-working and deserving lawyers recognised in this year’s guide. It is superb to see our Private Wealth Law teams rising up the rankings – reflecting the strength of their expertise, and the excellent advice they are providing to clients. The lawyers singled out for special recognition are a testament to the firm, and it’s always particularly encouraging to see our senior associates recognised.
