The Chambers Global High Net Worth (HNW) 2020 Guide – which ranks solicitors in specialist areas of law in the high net worth arena – has announced the results for its latest edition.
Recognised as the most widely used directory within the legal sector, the Chambers HNW Guide has ranked private wealth law partner, Lucy Wood on a national level for the very first time.
Meanwhile, partner Craig Williams has been awarded a top tier ranking again for his success in private wealth disputes in the Thames Valley; and High Value Real Estate partner, Martina Razaq has also been ranked nationally for the second time.
The B P Collins’ high value residential property and private wealth teams have also been ranked.
The Chambers HNW Guide features client feedback on partner Craig Williams saying, “his assessment and analysis of every case is thorough and incisive. His advice is honest and robust, giving the client reassurance and support. His knowledge of contentious probate is first-rate. His preparation is superb and his service is as good as any that I have seen.”
The guide also describes Craig as, “an experienced commercial litigator who has a fine reputation among sources for his handling of contentious private client matters.”
It also comments that partner Lucy Wood, who advises on wills, trusts and tax matters and leads the private client practice at the firm, is “a very good listener, has strong people skills, which put clients at ease and is good at problem solving,” and is “very nice to deal with.”
The Chambers HNW Guide adds that partner Martina Razaq, who handles high-value property matters for high net worth individuals and families, “is very straight-talking and clear in her advice,” with an estate agent adding, “Martina communicates clearly to both client and agent throughout the process.”
Senior partner, Simon Deans comments:
“This guide confirms that we completely understand our high net worth clients’ and are able to provide bespoke advice to meet their specific requirements. It’s also a useful and independent indicator to prospective clients that B P Collins HNW advisors always provide a trusted, straightforward and discreet service.”
