By Anita Jaynes on November 25, 2015

Withy King is the only law firm to have been ranked for private client work and expertise in Swindon and surrounding areas by internationally-renowned legal directory Chambers UK 2015, achieving a top tier ranking.

Chambers UK, which conducts independent research to assess and identify the best firms and lawyers, singled out Withy King’s private client team, praising its Wills, probate and tax services, which include advising individuals, families and entrepreneurs on wealth management, estate planning and family trusts.

Samantha O’Sullivan, head of the private client team at Withy King in Swindon, said: “Withy King’s merger with Lemon & Co last summer strengthened our private client offering, enabling us to provide a wider range of expert services to our Wiltshire clients. We are delighted that the quality of our private client work has been recognised by Chambers in this way.”

She continued: “We’ve noticed that the changing economy has made people more concerned about preserving their assets for the benefit of their children and grandchildren and they want to understand their options and in particular, the best and most cost-effective ways of passing money on. Fortunately, there are legitimate ways of protecting assets for future generations but this requires careful and expert planning to ensure the right structures are put in place to enable this to happen. All too often, intentions are great but the preparatory work isn’t done so the end result is not as any of the parties would have wished.”

Withy King is a full service law firm which employs around 300 people working closely with businesses and individuals across Wiltshire from offices in Swindon, Marlborough, Bath and Oxford as well as nationally.
