Browne Jacobson’s private client practice has been ranked as Band One in the 2022 Chambers and Partners High Net Worth Guide for its work in private wealth law. The guide is an independent and in-depth review that recognises lawyers and law firms operating in the international private wealth management space.

In addition, three 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 One and is rated “very highly” and praised for doing “a great job”, whilst partner Wenna Thompson, who is also ranked in Band One is considered as “always a pleasure to work with”. Partner Imogen Holmes is also ranked in Band Two.

The practice is made up of 10 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.

Lucy commented on the rankings: These rankings are testament to the high-quality advice we consistently deliver and the strong effective relationships we have built with our diverse and fantastic clients over the years.

“Our established team work on highly complex and highly sensitive matters that require a real understanding of our clients’ personal circumstances and the various commercial markets in which they operate. I believe that this is what we have become known for and why we are considered a real legal player in the private client space.”
