Warners is delighted to announce that it has kept its high ranking in the newly published Chambers HNW Guide. Three Partners from Warners’ Private Client team have been identified as ‘notable practitioners’ in the 2019 guide.
From the HNW guide
A source says that the solicitors at Warners are “excellent and very good to deal with” and adds that they “always go beyond the call of duty.” The firm advises affluent clients on tax and estate planning, asset protection and trust creation and administration.
Commentators particularly highlight the firm for its approach to client service. “I have always found Warners to be highly efficient and professional in all respects,” states an interviewee. Another source says: “Warners have a friendly but professional feel to their business. Individuals within the organisation tend to be able to communicate effectively and pass on relevant information quickly.”
Gail Hall concentrates on wills, tax planning and trust and estate administration matters, and also provides succession planning advice to farming clients. Her practice includes assisting with Lasting Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection applications. “I’ve found Gail to be extremely professional, kind and compassionate,” states an interviewee.
Mary Shaw is “excellent, very helpful and knowledgeable,” according to an interviewee. She handles the preparation of wills and helps clients with the administration of estates and trusts. “Mary was very competent and was able to provide sound advice on some quite complex areas. She was always on time and was able to quickly turn around work,” a source explains.
Philip Raggett regularly advises wealthy clients on trust matters and also assists with Inheritance Tax and Capital Gains Tax planning. “He’s good, I know him very well. He’s an excellent tax planning lawyer and I have referred to him when we couldn’t take on a matter,” says a fellow solicitor. Another source states: “I am impressed with his knowledge of trust law and his wealth of experience.”
