It has 'excellent strength in depth and provides careful, well-considered and comprehensive advice'.

Virginia Edgecombe has 'great depth of experience and is a safe pair of hands'. She leads a four-partner practice that includes newly promoted partner Lauren Parker, who is 'very good on technical tax points especially Inheritance Tax and Capital Gains Tax'; senior partner Justin Ripman, who acts for a large number of landed estates across the UK; and private tax specialist Gregory Laming. Laming and principal associate Elizabeth Field have ‘a thorough understanding of the issues, an up-to-date knowledge of relevant legislation and case law, and the ability to merge the two in an effective and challenging way‘. One client remarks that Field 'displays great knowledge in the area of trusts and estates and demonstrates a good ability to get on with clients'. 'Bright and sensible' associate Alexandra Clarke is also recommended.
