Team at Bristol Law Firm Achieves National Recognition


The Private Client team at award-winning law firm VWV has raised the bar once again with even more rankings in this year's High Net Worth Guide from independent directory Chambers & Partners.

The team advises on a variety of private client matters, ranging from estate administration and tax and succession planning to advising on Will disputes and family law.

The High Net Worth guide ranks leading lawyers and firms for international private wealth annually. The results this year see the firm rise from six rankings up to eight, with a new practice area ranking, and an increase in rank for one Partner.

In the latest edition, VWV's Private Client team in Bristol has stayed strong and retained all rankings from the previous year.

Head of Department Michelle Rose "is simply excellent", and has once again been ranked in the highest band for Private Wealth Law.

Fiona Lawrence (Band 2) is described as "top flight", "good at dealing with demanding clients and hard opponents" in contentious matters, and "is technically excellent".

Shelley Faulkner is once again ranked as an Associate to Watch, and handles a wide range of estate planning and administration matters. Sources describe her as "very friendly and approachable" and "she has an excellent knowledge of trusts and probates".

This year's rankings reflect an incredible year of work from the Private Client team, and we look forward to the publication of the Chambers UK Guide in the coming months.
