The Private Wealth team at independent UK law firm Burges Salmon has been nominated for Law Firm of the Year (UK wide) at the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards 2024. For over 18 years, the Citywealth awards have recognised the achievements of leading professionals, firms, and chambers in the legal wealth management industry.

Burges Salmon is nominated for demonstrating growth, innovation and delivering positive social impacts through its responsible business and ESG initiatives. Competing at the top of the legal market, Burges Salmon is the law firm of choice for complex and specialist advice for private wealth. The firm works with a range of clients including entrepreneurs, landowners, high net worth and ultra high net worth individuals, private banks, trustees and family offices. The firm also advises global financial institutions on the provision of trust and tax planning services.

The firm has an expert pool of knowledge, helping its clients structure their affairs, preserve their property and pass it on to their successors, whilst 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.

The firm’s nomination follows a series of awards and recognitions for the team including retaining its Tier 1 ranking in the 2023 eprivateclient Top Law Firms guide, winning the coveted Private Client Law Firm (Full Service) award at the 2023 eprivateclient Excellence Awards and being highly ranked in the Legal 500 and Chambers directories where clients describe Burges Salmon as ‘an excellent firm who attract and can handle top-quality work’, with a team that is ‘sensible and strategic but with a human touch’.

Suzanna Harvey, partner and head of Private Wealth at Burges Salmon, comments: “We’re thrilled to be nominated for another prestigious award. This is a tribute to the breadth of talent we have within our team, one of the largest in the UK, and a recognition of the important work we do for our clients in the UK and beyond.”

Bringing together 400+ professionals from over 140 organisations including leading law firms, trust companies, family offices, tax advisers and investment managers, the award ceremony will take place on 15 May in London. Winning firms and individuals will be determined following a process that includes a judging panel of private wealth advisors and an online public vote.
