Michelmores nominated for top Private Client Award

Michelmores has been shortlisted in the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners (STEP) annual awards in the category of UK and Ireland Regional Team of the Year, a prize the firm previously won in 2010.

STEP is the professional body for the trust and estate profession worldwide and its Private Client Awards highlight excellence among private client lawyers, accountants, bankers, financial advisers and trust managers worldwide.

The nomination follows hard on the heels of Michelmores winning the accolade of Regional Law Firm of the Year in the prestigious Citywealth Magic Circle Awards in May 2013.

The powerful team is one of the largest outside of London and is regularly praised for the quality of its work and client care by the legal ‘bibles’, Chambers & Partners and Legal 500.

Jonathan Riley, Head of the Tax, Trusts & Succession Team at Michelmores, who has also been recognised in the Citywealth 2013 'Leaders List', said: "We are once again delighted to be on such a prestigious shortlist.  Since the firm last won this award we have considerably grown our private client practice adding one of the country’s leading agricultural law teams to the department as well as appointing a team of private client specialists at our Bristol office led by acknowledged leader in her field, Sandra Brown."
