B P Collins’ wills, trusts and probate team retains high ranking in Chambers UK

B P Collins’ wills, trusts and probate team has maintained its high ranking in the latest High Net Worth Guide from Chambers UK 2017. Recognised as the most widely-used directory within the legal sector, Chambers UK ranks solicitors and barristers over a range of specialist areas of law.

B P Collins’ private client practice was rated on its capital tax planning, estate planning, wills, trusts and administration for high net worth individuals. Chambers UK reported that a local source commended the practice saying: “They’re a good firm doing this work, and they do a good amount of it.”

Another source added: “They’re approachable and give good service. It is not only their ability to give advice, but the way the advice is given.”

This recognition from Chambers UK follows the appointment of Gary Kiely, the practice’s new partner and group leader, who has several years’ experience advising high net worth individuals, with particular expertise in cross-border estates and complex tax issues.

Chief executive Ian Hopkins added: “Our new partner in the wills, trusts and probate practice is leading a very strong team, as reflected in the latest rankings. With Gary’s added expertise in advising the owners of multimillion-pound estates – from directors of blue chip companies to well-known clients from the entertainment industry – the team are set to go from strength to strength.”
