The Private Wealth team at independent UK law firm Burges Salmon has once again been recognised as a leading practice in the UK, retaining its Tier 1 ranking in the 2023 eprivateclient Top Law Firms guide.

The rankings provide a detailed analysis of the legal private client market in the UK, benchmarking firms and departments across four tiers. The results are based upon several factors including the number of private client partners and lawyers, firm and team revenue, client portfolio and eprivateclient’s knowledge and insights of the private client legal landscape.

Competing at the top of the legal market, Burges Salmon is the law firm of choice for complex and specialist advice for private wealth. With one of the largest dedicated private client teams in the UK, the firm works with a wide variety of clients including entrepreneurs, landowners, high net worth and ultra high net worth individuals, private banks, trustees and family offices, in the UK and internationally.

Burges Salmon has an expert pool of knowledge, helping its clients structure their affairs, preserve their property and pass it on to their successors, with the firm also providing advice on tax, divorce and nuptial agreements. The team is known for advising on complex cross-jurisdictional work and has a strong track record acting on some of the highest value and most complicated succession, tax planning and trust restructuring transactions in the UK and overseas. The firm also advises global financial institutions on the provision of trust and tax planning services.

Suzanna Harvey, partner and head of Private Wealth at Burges Salmon, comments: “We're thrilled to be recognised once again as a top tier firm in the UK for private wealth advice. This is the latest in a string of accolades for our practice, recognising the breadth and depth of talent we have within our team and the quality of advice we give to our clients to support their financial planning and protect their global wealth.”

Earlier this year, Burges Salmon won the coveted Private Client Law Firm (Full Service) award at the 2023 eprivateclient Excellence Awards. The team was also recognised in legal directories Legal 500 and Chambers High Net Worth, where clients described Burges Salmon as ‘an excellent firm who attract and can handle top-quality work’, ‘highly technical and responsive in all its areas of expertise’ with a team that is ‘sensible and strategic but with a human touch’.
