Birketts at the double in top UK legal awards
Law firm Birketts, which has grown its Cambridge and other East Anglian offices, has been named as the UK Regional Private Client Firm of the Year at The Legal 500 Awards 2017 – its second successive success.
The awards recognise and reward elite legal practitioners based on the most comprehensive research into the UK legal market, with over 50,000 interviews conducted to ascertain the winners.
Tim Galloway, head of Birketts' private client division, said: “Having won this highly-regarded award last year, I am thrilled that Birketts has received this accolade once again this year.
“It’s a fitting tribute to the hard work that our team puts in to giving excellent client service and clear technical advice across our private client law offering.
“Our clients trust us to work with them towards achieving the solution that is right for them. That trust is earned over time and it is the standard on which our reputation is based.”
CEO Jonathan Agar added: “Birketts has long been well-known for delivering exceptional standards within the Eastern Region in advising private clients on a broad range of issues relating to estates and private property, tax planning and family matters.
“However, with this double award win, Birketts’ private client team has firmly established itself as a leading firm for the provision of private client, family and agricultural law advice throughout the UK and internationally.
It is testament to the commitment and dedication of the whole Private Client Division across all four of our offices.”
