Michelmores lawyer named Lawyer of the Year at CityWealth Magic Circle Awards 2024

Iwan Williams, a Partner in Michelmores’ Tax, Trusts and Succession team, has won the Lawyer of the Year award at the CityWealth Magic Circle Awards 2024.

The CityWealth Magic Circle Awards, which have been running for nearly two decades, are a key feature in the private wealth sector calendar, celebrating the leading advisers and firms.

Iwan’s win is in recognition of the excellent client relationships he has nurtured and the trusted advice he gives to numerous high net worth individuals and families. He deals with all aspects of estate and succession planning and has extensive experience in a wide range of succession and tax matters.

Iwan comments on his win:

I am absolutely delighted, astonished, and humbled to have won Lawyer of the Year at CityWealth’s Magic Circle Awards this year. It was such a lovely surprise and deserving recognition for the entire team after a year of outstanding growth and success throughout the Private Wealth group at Michelmores.”

Christian Massey, head of the Firm’s Private Wealth group, adds:

I’m delighted to see Iwan cap off his first year at Michelmores with well-deserved recognition for the exemplary service he delivers for his clients and for his colleagues alike. Well done Iwan!”

Karen Jones, Founder, CEO and Editor of CityWealth, comments on the awards:

“With multiple elections, growing global aggression and civil protests, the wealth manager and adviser in all capacities are being called on for advice. In two decades we have not seen such critical issues up for debate. Now, more than ever, UHNW clients need to rely on the safety the industry provides to protect assets and knowledge to navigate family issues whether divorce, ESG investing, tax or succession.

“With that, CityWealth is delighted to present the best of breed for 2024. Congratulations to all the shortlisted individuals and organisations – they are absorbing the impact of world changes and digesting them in a manageable format for their clients.”

Michelmores was also awarded the Law Firm of the Year accolade at this year’s CityWealth Magic Circle Awards, as a testament to the Firm’s Private Wealth group working tirelessly to provide creative solutions for its clients and their nuanced requirements.
