Burges Salmon has been named as a finalist in the “Legal Team of the Year – Large Firm” category at the STEP 2014/15 Private Client Awards.

Our leading Private Client team is one of the largest in the UK and provides national and international clients with specialist advice on a range of issues including tax and wealth structuring, family law, commercial, litigation and property. The firm also acts for a number of private banks and trust companies in their own right.

The awards, now in their ninth year, recognise outstanding and complex work by solicitors, lawyers, accountants, trust managers and financial advisers across the private wealth sector. For the first time, all categories of this year's awards were open to firms and individuals worldwide and saw a record number of entries – over 240 submissions from 21 countries. The panel of judges, comprising leading names within the private wealth sector, noted that the standard of the entries was extremely high.

Catherine Hallam, who is the head of Burges Salmon's Private Client team, commented:

“We are really pleased to be recognised by STEP in this way. The team was shortlisted as a result of the wide range of complex tax, trusts and family work that we were able to show the judges we have done in the last 12 months – including one standout transaction involving international trust transfers and restructuring for a leading private bank, believed to be the largest of its type ever undertaken by a UK firm.'

The winners will be announced at a dinner and awards ceremony at the Hilton on Park Lane Hotel on 17 September 2014.
