Aaron & Partners are the only Chester-based team ranked in the Chambers and Partners High Net Worth Guide, which also listed senior solicitors from the firm, Clive Pointon and James Wallace

A team of Solicitors from Chester-based law firm Aaron and Partners have been named the best in the region for private wealth law services in a prestigious industry guide.

The firm’s 17-strong Wills, Trusts and Tax team earned a band one rank – the highest available – from Chambers and Partners for its expertise in disputes and dealing with high-net-worth cases.

Aaron & Partners were also the only Chester firm named in the top rankings for private wealth disputes in the North West, with only three law firms achieving band one status.

The independent guide, which provides rankings for over 5,200 UK-based legal departments, is widely recognised as a leading authority for identifying the best law firms and solicitors across the UK.

The 2021 rankings also recognised the work of Clive Pointon, Partner and Head of Wills Trusts, and Tax, for his ‘vast, in-depth knowledge’, making him the only Chester-based solicitor in band one for private wealth law services.

James Wallace, Contested Wills, Trusts & Estates Partner, is also listed in band one for the Northwest after he was noted for his ‘clear, practical advice and clarity of thinking’ in dealing with contentious private client matters.

The Wills, Trusts and Tax team at Aaron and Partners has been working to support clients in Cheshire and across the UK over the last 20 years. The team also has a strong presence in Shropshire with a dedicated office in the region.

Clive Pointon said: “Being included in this guide is a significant achievement for us and to have earned band one status again underlines the excellent standards we work to and provide for all of our clients.

“Collectively, we’re very proud to represent Chester, Cheshire and the wider North West and we’re delighted to be the only top-ranked Wills, Trusts and Tax department in the region. We’re looking forward to continuing the growth we’re seeing in lots of important areas and meeting the changing demands of our clients.”

James Wallace added: “Our team has built its reputation on delivering excellent outcomes for clients – even in the most complex of cases.

“We’ve been listed against some huge firms in London in the latest rankings and that demonstrates how the service we offer sits alongside the very best in the country. However, I believe we have a much more bespoke approach that provides our clients with added value and greater peace of mind, which is one of the hallmarks of our success.”
