In addition, four lawyers from the team have been ranked as notable practitioners including partner and head of the private client practice, Lucy Worwood who is ranked in Band Two and is “rated very highly” and praised for being "commercial, pragmatic and very collaborative”. Partner Imogen Holmes who joined the firm in June is also ranked in Band One alongside partner Wenna Thompson who is considered “the go-to at Browne Jacobson”, and as having “excellent lateral thinking skills”.

The practice is made up of nine specialist lawyers across the firm’s Nottingham and London offices but works nationally with a diverse client base made up of families, wealthy individuals, land-owners, entrepreneurs, investors, trustees, accountants, independent financial advisors and other professionals, both on and offshore.

The team provides specialist legal advice on wills, tax planning, succession and estate planning, trust advice and administration, probate and powers of attorney, specialist advice on commercial trusts and non-approved pension schemes.

The practice is also ranked tier 1 by Legal 500 and regarded by Chambers & Partners as a "major name," and the "premier player for private clients in Nottingham”.
