Greene & Greene is 'very good, providing fast and helpful responses from a good selection of people able to provide specialist knowledge as needed'. One client describes the practice as 'first-class, always accessible, quick and efficient'. Head of department and STEP member Wayne Perrin, who is one of three qualified chartered tax advisors in the practice, is 'always available, approachable and capable of providing good information in a friendly and clear manner; he listens and then offers good clear advice'. He recently advised  a client on a tax-efficient succession strategy for a £12m estate. The practice is best-known for advice on taxation, but it has a broad client base for complex trusts, estates and probate matters. Solicitor and chartered tax advisor Nigel Scase is 'very knowledgeable regarding HMRC and acts with reasonable promptitude'. Jonathan Mathers, who handles agricultural and private client matters, and trusts and estates practitioners Martine Swaep and Ian Cottam are also recommended.
