Independent UK law firm Burges Salmon is pleased to announce that its Private Client team has been successful in the ‘Private Client Law Firm (Full Service)’ category at the 2023 eprivateclient Excellence Awards, which took place on Thursday 8 June 2023.

The eprivateclient Excellence Awards recognise the outstanding achievements of firms across the UK and offshore legal, tax, fiduciary and advisory professions over the past year. Entry to the awards is by invitation-only and finalists are required to demonstrate a wide range of achievements, including not only technical expertise, but also their success in innovation, service delivery, client care, community and social impact, governance and the environment.

Burges Salmon has received this win for being recognised as acting on some of the most complex work in UK private wealth and its commitment to service for individuals and families.

Burges Salmon’s Head of Private Client, Jim Aveline, says: “To win this award is great news for the firm and for the whole team, and we were certainly up against some stiff competition. We constantly strive to provide the highest levels of service excellence to our wide and diverse range of clients, and to have that commitment acknowledged through this national award is terrific. I’m really proud of everyone in the team and I look forward to building on this latest milestone moving forward.”

The firm’s Private Client team is nationally recognised for providing clear and practical legal advice to clients in the UK and abroad. It works with a wide variety of clients including entrepreneurs, landowners, Ultra High Net Worth Individuals (UHNWI), High Net Worth Individuals (HNWI), trustees and family offices, both onshore and offshore. With one of the largest private client law offerings in the UK, the team has an expert pool of knowledge, helping its clients to mitigate tax, structure their affairs, preserve their property and pass it on to their successors, including advice on divorce and nuptial agreements. The team has extensive experience of cross-border estate and succession planning, international tax and property structuring, and settling family disputes. It also advises global financial institutions on the provision of trust and tax planning services.
