Kerseys Solicitors excels when it comes to advising clients on personal tax, trusts and probate, according to an annual report.
The private client department was marked as a top tier in the Legal 500 – the law sector’s industry bible.
The report stated: “[Kerseys] is noted for its ‘consistently good level of service’. The ‘helpful and thorough’ Peter Awad leads a six-lawyer team that includes partners Geoffrey Sutton, who advised an estate with complex cross-border and business property relief issues, and Leila Murray.”
Kerseys was also been recommended in the following five practice areas:
corporate and commercial; dispute resolution — commercial litigation; private client (family); real estate — commercial property and real estate — property litigation.
Highlights for Kerseys Solicitors included advising an estate management company on securitising its property portfolio and the sale of commercial units. The ‘proactive, efficient and flexible’ Kimat Singh and consultant James Hayward were recommended.
Twelve lawyers were also recommended: Kimat Singh, Matthew Osborn and Amanda Wheatley (in commercial); Anthony Wooding and Ross Burkitt (for dispute resolution and real estate – property litigation); Clare Thomas, Elaine Webb and Rosemary Carter (family); Geoffrey Sutton, Leila Murray and Peter Awad (private client) and James Hayward and Kimat Singh (real estate – commercial property).
The report found Kerseys ‘provides excellent service and value for money.’
Peter Awad, a partner and head of the private client department, said: “We are delighted to see our hard work and dedication receive such recognition from the Legal 500.”
Managing partner Anthony Wooding added: “To have a department marked as a tier 1 and for a dozen lawyers to be individually recommended is no small feat. I’m very proud of the team here at Kerseys.”
