Clarke Willmott recognised in prestigious High Net Worth Guide

The latest Chambers and Partners High Net Worth Guide has been released and national law firm Clarke Willmott LLP has once again been recognised at the highest level.

Three of the firm’s regional offices have placed highly and five lawyers have been named individually in the guide which recognises leading firms and legal advisers for high value legal matters.

Clarke Willmott’s Bristol office has climbed from Band 3 to Band 2 for its Private Wealth law provision while the Taunton office retained the highest Band 1 ranking. The Manchester office also retained its ranking in Band 2.

The guide noted that Clarke Willmott ‘is experienced in complex and often international trust matters, estate planning and wills and probate’ and that the team is ‘competent and thorough, with a clear portrayal of costs involved’.

Individual lawyers named in the guide include Taunton partner David Maddock and Manchester partner Paul Davies, both of whom take the top Band 1 ranking in private wealth law. Bonita Walters, partner in the Bristol office, is named in Band 1 for private wealth disputes.

Taunton-based Tom Chiffers received a Band 3 ranking and Rebecca Clarke has been named a ‘Star Associate’ having previously been named an ‘Associate to Watch’ in 2021.

Anthony Fairweather (pictured), head of Clarke Willmott’s private client team, said: “To receive this recognition as one of the leading private client law firms in the UK is fantastic.

“The Chambers High Net Worth Guide is a well-respected resource and to be consistently highly ranked is a testament to our hard-working and talented lawyers.

“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.”

The Chambers and Partners High Net Worth guide covers private wealth management work and related specialisms, recognising the leading lawyers and law firms for wealthy individuals and families.

Clarke Willmott LLP is a national law firm with seven offices across the country in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, London, Manchester, Southampton and Taunton.
