Wards Solicitors’ Contentious Trusts and Probate lawyers have won fulsome praise for their empathy, efficiency, expertise and experience in the latest edition of the highly regarded Legal 500 guide for 2020.
The guide, an independent publication which uses feedback from satisfied clients as one of the key means of determining its rankings, singles out team head, Partner Elizabeth Fry, and Partner Ian Williamson, as key lawyers.
Glowing testimonials describe Elizabeth Fry as ‘compassionate, understanding and non-judgemental’ and Ian Williamson as ‘calm personified’ and ‘unflappable’. Both are commended as experienced and knowledgeable and ‘outstanding in their area of expertise’.
‘A strong, well-motivated team’
Other recommendations given by clients and cited in the guide endorse the calibre of the entire Contentious Trusts and Probate team. This also includes Solicitor Associate, Emma Kerry, and Solicitor, Claire James:
The team is singled out for its excellent track record in dealing with high-value disputes over Wills, trusts and probate and its handling of cross-jurisdictional issues including assessing the validity of Wills and the sale of property relating to deceased family members.
Elizabeth Fry, says the guide, regularly represents private and business clients on disputes relating to the Inheritance Act.
Cases handled by the team and described as ‘work highlights’ by Legal 500 include:
Wards Solicitors is open and our teams continue to work on existing cases and take on new business and clients.
From early August, we are pleased to announce that we will slowly be starting to re-open some of our branches to clients, but all appointments must be pre-booked.
Availability for face-to- face meetings in branches will be limited, and remote contact with teams – via phone, email or video call – is preferred wherever possible. Our prime concern remains the safety of our clients and our staff.
Please note that all visitors to our offices must, by law, wear a face covering.
We cannot accept drop-in appointments.
