The firm is ‘by far the best‘, according to one client, while another describes the lifetime planning practice as 'professional, knowledgeable, friendly'. The firm handles tax and estate planning for the professional, academic and agricultural clients in Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, often involving complex and multi-jurisdictional matters. The firm has a particular niche in French legal affairs. Associate Louise Cardwell is ‘a rising star who should be fast-tracked to partner'. Rising star associate Janette Wand is 'kind, gentle, helpful and a pleasure to work with'. Together they provide 'a holistic service with a real emphasis on attention to detail and client care'.
