Harrogate and Leeds based law firm Berwins is celebrating as its Life team has been recognised among the UK's top departments for private client work.
The team, which supports individuals on estate planning is among just five firms in the Yorkshire region to have been ranked in band one in the leading industry directory, Chambers and Partners.
Reflecting on the rating, Head of department Julie Jewers – who was described as “an outstanding lawyer” - commented "We are delighted to have received recognition in such a well-respected industry directory.
"In addition to ranking the top firms, the guide also offers a commentary on what clients can expect and it's particularly pleasing that the researchers who compiled the work have picked out the high levels of care and service which we pride ourselves on at Berwins."
In addition to Julie, who is recognised as one of the top six private client lawyers in York, Hull and the surrounding areas, estate planning expert Gareth Marland is identified as a Star Associate and is commended for his approach to supporting families and individuals - particularly those with farming businesses.
The rankings, received in the 2017 edition of Chambers and Partners High Net Worth guide are compiled based on independent research.
