BURGES Salmon has been named as a finalist for the 2022 eprivateclient Excellence Awards.
The eprivateclient Excellence Awards recognise the outstanding achievements of firms across the UK and offshore legal, tax, fiduciary and advisory professions over the past year. Entry to the awards is by invitation-only and finalists are required to demonstrate a wide range of achievements, including not only technical expertise, but also their success in innovation, service delivery, client care, community and social impact, governance and environment.
The firm has been recognised in respect of having one of the best and largest dedicated Private Wealth teams in the UK and acting on some of the highest value and most complex succession, tax planning and trust restructuring work in private wealth.
By treating private wealth as a sector, the firm has expanded the core 40+ private client lawyers to a 65-strong Private Wealth team whose reputation is demonstrated by the industry events to which the team has contributed, including STEP and CIOT. The team has also delivered in-house training to thousands of delegates in the UK, Channel Islands, Switzerland, Monaco, Bermuda, Singapore and South Africa.
The Private Wealth team is recognised for its expertise and clients focus, and the news is a positive addition to its recent accomplishments which include winning “Private Client Legal Team of the Year” at the STEP Private Client Awards 2021/22, the fourth occasion since 2015/16.
This win also adds to a series of awards the firm has achieved this year, including being shortlisted in three categories at Chambers High Net Worth Awards 2022 and Burges Salmon’s Head of Private Wealth, Beatrice Puoti, being named in eprivateclient’s 50 Most Influential 2022.
Head of Private Wealth at Burges Salmon, Beatrice Puoti, commented: “This fantastic news is testament to our outstanding lawyers and expertise within the Private Wealth team, of which I am very proud. As a team, and as individuals, we are constantly striving to provide the best service for our clients and we are pleased to have that commitment acknowledged. We look forward to building on the strength and breadth of the team moving forward.”
The 2022 eprivateclient Excellence Awards will be taking place on Thursday 7 July.
