Have your say

Teams from Wrigleys operations in Sheffield and Leeds continue to be among the top-ranked specialists in Yorkshire dealing with issues surrounding personal tax, trusts and probate.

UK and offshore trusts and entrepreneurs, with complex administrations, cross-border and asset protection issues, are among the clients of the firm, whose Sheffield team is led by Lynne Bradey.

Another firm with Sheffield and Leeds operations, Lupton Fawcett Lee & Priestley, and Irwin Mitchell’s Sheffield offices secure places in the second rank.

Lupton Fawcett Lee & Priestley deals with major trust and estate reorganisations, estate planning and tax mitigation matters.

Irwin Mitchell’s team, led by Craig Marshall, acts for high-net-worth individuals, global financial institutions, building societies and charities and includes Gillian Coverley, who oversees the firm’s volume wills and estate administration operation.

Three Sheffield firms gain places among the third rank.

HLW Keeble Hawson, whose team includes George Connell and Michele Todd, is recommended for its skills handling high net-worth planning, estate administration and Court of Protection work.

The three-partner team at Taylor & Emmet, led by Diana Smart, is noted for its work on trusts and tax planning, the administration of estates, and mental incapacity issues.

Meanwhile, the team at Wake Smith, overseen by Michael Tunbridge, is praised for its niche strength in inheritance tax mitigation, usually via wills and trusts and lasting powers of attorney.

Also mentioned in the personal tax, trusts and probate rankings is the team at Bell & Buxton.
