DMH Stallard ranked top in prestigious Legal Guide

21 Sep 2017

We have achieved a top ‘Band 1’ ranking in the newly launched Chambers High Net Worth Guide for our work with private clients. Chambers has been ranking the best legal practitioners since 1990 and is considered one of the foremost sources for information about the world’s lawyers.

Our private client work includes estate and succession planning, advice on inheritance tax and capital gains tax mitigation, estate administration and the drafting of wills. Our team also advises on trust matters, including the establishment and management of trust structures. Lawyers at the firm handle lasting powers of attorney and Court of Protection applications.

The well-known and respected guide praises the team as ‘extremely knowledgeable’ and ‘very efficient, organised and a calming influence’.

Robert Knight, Partner at DMH Stallard, receives special recognition as a ‘notable practitioner'. Robert assists clients with succession planning, trust and tax issues. He advises on the mitigation of inheritance tax and capital gains tax, and often acts as an executor of estates. Robert works with individuals, families, trustees and beneficiaries on trust matters.

Sources for the guide describe him as ‘knowledgeable, conscientious and thorough,’ and praise his ‘excellent manner with clients’. Another said, ‘Robert in my opinion has fantastic client rapport and gravitas whilst having acute technical knowledge in private client law,’ adding that, ‘he's particularly strong on trust and tax work, as well as the more complex will structuring as well.’

Richard Pollins, Managing Partner, said:

“It is very satisfying to be recognised in the Chamber High Net Worth Guide.  We take great pride in providing the highest quality service to our UK and international private clients and this ranking is welcome recognition of that.”
