A company with offices in Milton Keynes and Newport Pagnell has been recognised as one of the UK’s top 25 law firms for services to private clients.

It’s the first time that Shakespeares, in Silbury Boulevard and High Street, has made it into the UK-wide listing run by Private Client Practitioner (PCP) magazine.

PCP is a website and magazine publisher targeted at meeting the information needs of those involved in the creation and preservation of private wealth.

Sarah Wright, partner in private client services at Shakespeares’ Milton Keynes office, said: “This is a prestigious acknowledgement of the quality of the firm’s private client services, which have been enriched as the firm has grown in size and we are delighted to have made the grade.

“Private client work is a fast-changing area of the legal services marketplace and we are focused on providing high quality, specialist services such as inheritance tax planning; trust and settlement planning and legal advice relating to matters of mental capacity. We also act for a number of landed estates and help to administer some grant-making charities.”

The firm has also achieved a ‘top tier’ ranking in this year’s Legal 500 for its private client work in the South East, linked to its Milton Keynes office, and in the West Midlands.
