We are delighted to once again have been recognised at the highest level in the annual Chambers and Partners High Net Worth Guide

The team have been described as “one of the strongest firms for private client”, together with three of our offices placing highly and five lawyers being named individually, in the guide which recognises leading firms and legal advisers for high value legal matters.

Our Taunton office retained its Band 1 ranking, Manchester gained a Band 2 ranking and Bristol received a Band 3 ranking.

Ranked in Band 1 is Taunton partner David Maddock, together with Manchester partner Paul Davies.

Partner Tom Chiffers received a Band 3 ranking after being named in the ‘up and coming’ category for the first time last year.

Retaining their ranking as ‘associates to watch’ are Manchester-based Nicola Walker and Rebecca Clarke.

Additionally, the firm has been recognised for our work in Private Wealth Disputes in the South West with a further three lawyers named individually as leading practitioners in this field – in Band 1 is Bonita Walters, in Band 2 is Esther Woolford and once again named as ‘associate to watch’ is Sarah O’Grady.

Anthony Fairweather, head of our Private Client team, said: “We are delighted to once again have been named as one of the leading private client law firms in this year’s High Net Worth Guide.

“It is a testament to our hard-working and conscientious lawyers that we have retained or improved on last year’s impressive results, showcasing the strength and consistency of our practice.

“Our strong and growing presence in all regions of the UK highlights Clarke Willmott’s private client practice as one of the best and most diverse in the country.”
