Spear’s publishes annual rankings of the top private client advisers and service providers to HNWs. These are drawn up on the basis of peer nominations, client feedback, telephone and face-to-face interviews, data supplied by firms, as well as information gathered by the Spear’s editorial and research teams. The tax indices specifically aim to identify the best tax advisors who can assist HNW and UHNWs looking to navigate the labyrinthine revenue regimes and cross-border issues, plan their estates or to set up sensible structures, whilst the contentious category considers the lawyers who guide their clients through complex cross-border disputes over trust and estate matters.
This news follows a stream of success for the Private Wealth practice, having recently been named ‘International Legal Team of the Year (midsize firm)’ & ‘Family Business Advisory Practice of the Year’ at the annual Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) Awards 2023 and noted by the judging panel “as a one-stop shop …that is trusted by ultra-high-net-worth clients and families.” The team has also been nominated for Spear’s “Grand Prix, Private Client Team of the Year” award in recognition of the firm’s exhibition of excellence, innovation, and distinction in the teeming private wealth market and has upheld top band rankings in Chambers High Net Worth guide 2023.
Within the Spear’s indices, the firm has also been recognised for its excellence in Arts and Luxury, Assets, Family, Immigration, Property and Landed Estates. For more information regarding the index, please click here.
