Chambers High Net Worth Guide ranks leading lawyers and law firms for international private wealth. Those ranked in the guide are recognised for their understanding of the complex needs of High Net Worth individuals in providing specialist advice and legal services.
The guide is aimed at helping people find the leading lawyers in their field and is compiled through independent research involving submissions from legal peers and clients.
Lanyon Bowdler’s private client team in Shrewsbury is described in the guide as having a broad client offering, advising clients on trusts, estate planning and administration, tax planning, contentious probate and powers of attorney.
The guide says the team’s “friendly and courteous service, relevant advice and guidance is excellent”, and “they are able to quickly identify the key issues in each case and develop a clear strategy to deal with each of those issues”. Another interviewee said: “Lanyon Bowdler provides an extremely high-quality service.”
Edward Rees is described in the guide as “extremely knowledgeable, he has the knack of making complicated matters appear straightforward”, while another interviewee describes him as “fantastic”.
