Three Ashtons’ Lawyers Ranked Top in Legal Guide
Three partners from Ashtons Legal have been ranked Band 1 in their disciplines within the Chamber and Partners High Net Worth Guide 2022.
Jennie Pratt remains at Band 1 for Private Wealth Law for the Cambridge and Surrounds area. The other notable successes go to Alan Brown and Polly Stephenson, who both move up to Band 1 in their respective categories. Alan is recognised for his work providing Private Wealth Law in the Ipswich and Surrounds area, and Polly is now ranked Band 1 for Private Wealth Disputes in the whole of East Anglia.
Chambers and Partners produce international rankings for the legal industry, identifying and ranking the most outstanding law firms and lawyers in over 180 jurisdictions throughout the world.
Jennie Pratt and Alan Brown are part of one of the largest private client teams in the region and have many years of experience advising clients on estate planning and inheritance, and related taxes. Both are longstanding members of STEP (Society for Trust and Estate Practitioners).
Polly works in a more niche area of the law, advising executors/trustees, beneficiaries and disappointed beneficiaries as both claimants and defendants in trust disputes and contentious probate and inheritance claims relating to estates ranging from modest in size to those in excess of £8 million. She is a member of ACTAPS (Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Solicitors) and leads a rapidly growing team of contentious probate lawyers.
James Tarling, Ashtons’ CEO, says: “Chambers and Partners is a well-respected legal guide, and I am therefore delighted that they have recognised the fantastic work that Jennie, Alan, Polly and their teams do in providing exceptional service to our clients. I am hugely proud of our team.”
